My code is based on http://neophob.com/2007/10/putty-private-key-cracker/ by michu. Usage: 1. Compile ppk2john.c (run "gcc ppk2john.c -o ppk2john" in src folder) 2. Run ppk2john on PuTTY private key files. 3. Run john on the output of ppk2john. Benchmarks: $ ../run/john -fo:ppk -t # AMD X3 720 BE CPU Benchmarking: PuTTY Private Key SHA-1 / AES [32/64]... (3xOMP) DONE Raw: 409920 c/s real, 138020 c/s virtual Real cracking is slower than the benchmark (around 73,000 c/s per core). Standalone cracker (for debugging, no longer recommended for real use) can be obtained from https://github.com/halfgenius/ppkcracker. GPG secret keys are next on my list. -- Cheers, Dhiru
