Now benchmark 6300K This one is better, but a few problems remain: - you haven't merged the options.c hack; I did not mention this to you before, but it is needed for "--show --format=nt" to work; - the get_hash_() and binary_hash_() functions are still wrong - you do not need the right shifts, but you should have these functions return 8- and 12-bit hash values, respectively. Some potential improvements: - the code is for 32-bit little-endian only (this is documented in the comment) - it is trivial to make it work on x86-64 as well, you simply need to replace all instances of "long" with "int" (tested, works); other architectures might require more work (I am guessing that the code is also dependent on unaligned accesses - although I did not verify this); - you might get some minor speedup by having get_key() extract the password back from md4_buffer - then you do not need to have set_key() save the password in saved_plain; - I don't think you've used a substantial amount of my code (it's just the "formats" framework) - how about placing the NT_fmt.c file in the public domain (with a comment to that extent) rather than having it GPL'ed? you do not need to credit me in this source file to avoid any concerns that the GPL might apply. Indeed, you've also reused some of my ideas, but ideas are not code. :-) Thanks, -- 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 -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
