As MD4 and its successors have been designed with 32bit efficiency in mind it's no wonder that they work well that way. The CELL processor is a beast and a naive (using a lot of registers ...) MD4 implementation leads to 180M hashes/s. Using the "guess part of the password, reverse a part of the process" trick it's possible to go way past the 200M hashes/s symbolic limit. -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
