This is fine, yet perhaps there's significant room for optimization. Was there any demand for cracking GRUB's hashes, though? I haven't heard of any. I understand that the OpenCL code for PBKDF2-SHA-512 will be reusable, though. > NEXT WEEK: > Priority order: > -finish grub-opencl > -fix grub OpenMP issue > -investigate and fix problem with TS reported by magnum > -work OSX 10.8 format > -try grub cpu version without openssl - it should be faster I don't mind, but here's a concern: you appear to be avoiding the more difficult portions of work, whereas I had expected that those would be the primary focus of your GSoC work this summer - that is, a difficulty increase compared to your GSoC 2011 project. Here are some things I think you can/should work on this summer: Working md5crypt on HD 7970 (I think yours still fails there, doesn't it?) Faster md5crypt. Yours delivers about the same c/s rate as phpass at $P$9, whereas it should be about twice faster (since it does twice fewer MD5 computations). (Both CUDA and OpenCL need improvement.) Faster phpass in OpenCL. (I think yours still under-performs by a factor of 2 on HD 7970 Your CUDA code for phpass is already near-optimal.) Bitslice DES on GPU, both OpenCL and CUDA. DES-based crypt(3) is semi-fast, so it's inbetween your and myrice's GSoC projects in this sense, but BSDI-style one is slow (under typical settings). And indeed the DES code itself should be reusable for other DES-based formats, including fast ones. I listed the above roughly in priority order. Bitslice DES is listed last because it might also be picked up and worked on by myrice. Thanks, Alexander
