The above patch uses "salt-sha1" to refer to this hash type, but you shouldn't have to specify that explicitly. If your input file is of the right format, the hash type should be autodetected. > And is this possible with the MPI patches to John? You should be able to apply both the above patch and an MPI patch at the same time, possibly with minor tweaks. I do not recommend the use of the MPI patches, though. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
