What if the password chosen by the user was "foobarzzA123%"? This complies with the policy but after truncation it's just lower case letters. Because of this, I believe your best bet is to use incremental mode fixed to 8 characters, but no filter. Unfortunately, you are stuck with the higher number of possible candidates. It's an interesting question anyway: External filters perform pretty bad for fast hashes. Where is the bottleneck? Can we do anything about it? On a side note, you might want to check out the nsk-3 patch (a.k.a "Faster bitslice DES key setup for JtR 1.7.8" on the wiki) unless you already did that. Not a huge boost, but still a boost (13-14% on my gear). magnum
