I was stymied last time by a confusing facet of the format system: There's no way to specify that a hash might have multiple possible salts. Tripcodes always have 3969 possible salts for any given ciphertext, corresponding to a mapping of the second and third characters of the plaintext. (Specifically, they are mapped down to 63 possibilities per character, and 63**2 is 3969.) However, I noticed that, for DES, there is a "many salts" message during benchmarking. I can't help but be curious: Is there a way to tell the DES cruncher to try a variety of salts for a given ciphertext? Obviously, I could rig up a shell script that simply spins JtR several thousand times for a given tripcode, but that seems kinda silly. :3 Thanks in advance, ~ C. -- When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir? ~ Keynes Corbin Simpson <MostAwesomeDude@...il.com>
