All, This hasn't been announced yet - but I am running a password cracking contest at the Defcon security conference this year. I will be giving out approx. 50,000 password hashes and the winner is the team thats cracks the most/gets the most points in 48 hours. There will be a nice prize ($$$) from my company for the winning team. I will post more information later about it later, but just wanted to give you all a heads up about it now. Ive created the password lists to both reward and punish brute forcers ;) I really want to see what other techniques people are using to crack passwords, (GPU ? large clusters? smart rules? etc) and I want people to share their techniques with others. Im really curious what software people are going to use. So, time to plan your trip to Vegas. -Minga KoreLogic
