Here is how quickly my program enumerates 6 - 10 (numbers only) on a six core AMD box (each number gets a core to itself, so in this case, 5 cores were used) there is no SSE math or anything else fancy going on, just threads and brute-force space enumeration: $ time ./16crack nt --numbers --no-mangle < nt_clean.txt > results.txt Finished Brute 6: 1234567890 Finished Brute 7: 1234567890 Finished Brute 8: 1234567890 Finished Brute 9: 1234567890 Finished Brute 10: 1234567890 real 67m6.326s user 74m27.730s sys 0m0.060s I've never tried doing this with JTR, so I don't know how it would compare. It may do better than this (I would expect it to as it's much more mature), but I would not expect it to perform worse (at least not by a lot) on the same hashes and the same hardware. Brad
