Or downside and upsides for jTr and OCL hashcat? I am not aware of a head-to-head comparison between these. That said, Simon Marechal (aka Bartavelle) will speak on a related topic - comparing several revisions of JtR's incremental and Markov modes (current and future) - at Passwords^12 in Oslo in just 3 weeks from now. Indeed, we'll post the slides online afterwards. Simon is also going to cover the topic of optimization of wordlist rulesets, which you mentioned a need for further in this thread. Alexander
