Subject: PRINCE approach from hashcat

What's hashcat up to here?  I only skimmed the PDF briefly.

Maybe the groundbreaking part is over my head, but it didn't
immediately spring out at me.

Page 35 of the PDF has this summary of operation:

• Load words from wordlist

• Store words in memory

• Generate element chains for each password length
– Reject chains that does include an element which points to a
non-existing password length

• Sort chained-elements by keyspace of the chain

• Iterate through keyspace (mainloop)
– Select the next chain of that password length
– Generate password with chain
– Print
