I am currently *not* in favour of introducing new format(s) for
cracking Cisco "type 4" hashes (future code maintenance problems?).

I think that existing format(s) and the new cisco2john.pl utility are
enough for cracking Cisco "type 4" hashes.

cisco2john.pl can be found at
https://github.com/kholia/JohnTheRipper/blob/cisco-type-4/run/cisco2john.pl

magnum,

Do you think that introducing new specific format(s) has any
advantages over this mentioned approach?
