Subject: Optimized DES Crypt implementations

Hi all

i'm doing a short assignment for school on password algorithms/crackers and
am looking for information on fast crypt implementations right now.
john the ripper is fastest program i could find to do this but there are no
design notes, (as to how or why it is best at cracking, for example DES
what flaws exist in the crypt() or other algorithms, that can be exploited
to crack passwords faster..??
any existing papers out there on this?

thanks all for any feedback
