Subject: Question about hashes


My question may sound strange : what is the "faster-or-easier-to-crack-by-john"
hash ?

Here the stuff : I have some cleartext stored passwords (please don't ask me why
or how, it's not my choice !) that I would like to audit using John. These
passwords are stored in cleartext by a kind of Password Vault software. The
thing is to audit these passwords automatically.

What I do for now is create a Unix-like password file using Perl. I then  can
run JtR against the Unix hashes.

So I just wonder if there is a more easier or faster cracked hash format to
choose so my audits run take less time.

Hope I was clear enough...
