I have now committed two patches, one that adds the candidate figure to the log file when using StatusShowCandidates, and another that adds a john.conf option "NoLoaderDupeCheck" that disables the dupe checking. I did not add any command-line option for the latter. Try it out! Seems to work fine but not much tested. If something is amiss, give me a shout. https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/tarball/unstable-jumbo > What I probably need to do is create a first draft of a "research readme" > about the various settings in John that might be interesting for > someone doing password cracking research.

Here are the existing stuff (including the above) I can think of that can be handy in various kinds of experiments: Command-line options: --mkpc=1 Decreases max keys per crypt to 1, so you can see in log which exact rule caused a crack. This comes with a performance penalty. --progress-every=N Emit a status line every N seconds. --crack-status Emit a status line whenever a password is cracked. --max-run-time=N Gracefully exit after this many seconds. --loopback Use the plaintexts from john.pot as wordlist. --log-stderr Log to screen instead of file. Config file settings: CrackStatus Same as --crack-status. StatusShowCandidates Show number of crypts in status lines and log file. LogCrackedPasswords Output passwords to log file, not just the usernames. NoLoaderDupeCheck Disable dupe hash suppression when loading hashes. > For example, figuring out how to use the "dummy" format required a bit of > Google searching on my part Yeah I actually flagged your mail for keeping a note on how to create dummy hashes easily. Without it, I'd end up re-inventing a perl one-liner every time :-) magnum
