I disagree with this : Provide bonus points to teams that use software they wrote themselves or hardware they built themselves from scratch. Anyone can download and execute other people's software and/or buy lots of high-priced video cards. Neither of those require much thought or creativity and neither of those are a cool hack suitable for Defcon. I believe sunmd5 was exactly this bonus: if you can't write your own tools you will not crack any of them. I don't know why team Hashcat didn't try to crack them however, they certainly can build tools ... They probably (rightly) felt they would win by focusing on the already implemented hashes.
