Date: Mon, 11 May 2015 14:41:51 -0400 From: Mathieu Laprise <mathlaprise@...il.com> To: john-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Mathieu's weekly report #2 Accomplishments: - Add OpenMP support to Johnny. The user has the choice of number of OpenMP threads to use. If he choose default, john will choose it based on the number of cores or he can chooses another value in Johnny. - As requested by Solar, add a way to set environment variables for john in Johnny. For example, the user can write Variable1=value1, Variable2=value2, Variable3=value3 in Johnny and we will set those environment variables in the john process. Those features and the work that I've previously done in week #1 are merged in the PR https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/4 Since feature 1.5.1 Manual plain-text guessing for individual ciphers (directly in the table view) 's requirements hasn't been defined clearly by the team yet, we decided to do Windows initial support in this sprint. - Windows initial support. On Windows (tested on 8.1), Johnny can't terminate cleanly the main(and only) process of JtR(equivalent of unix sigterm). So, start attack/pause attack don't work. I spent a lot of time finding and testing a clean solution for this. It's not a lot of line of codes but it was tricky to get a working solution to this problem. This code works and can be found here : https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/5 - Start priorizing and working on the 179 TODOs from 2012 that are in the code. Priorities: My first idea was to start 1.5.1 if the requirements were clear. However, Shinnok and I discussed and it'll be continue working on the 179 TODOS from 2012 and redo in another way windows initial support. More infos can be found in discussions from this week : thread Windows event loop and thread TODOS and comments in code Content of type "text/html" skipped
