Subject: MySQL 3.23 hash optimizations


I just found this web page:

It mentions a reversing optimization and, if I understand correctly,
testing entire groups of candidate passwords with much fewer explicit
tests - but this probably won't fit into JtR.

Well, maybe it'd fit if crypt_all() can produce more output indices than
we had keys set with set_key().  (A formats interface enhancement that
is planned anyway.)  Then get_key() would generate and return the actual
"virtual keys" (if there's a match on a key that was never tried by the
high-level code explicitly).

I just thought I'd have this "bookmarked" in here.
