You can generate your own, the recent jtr charset's are arguably "better" than any previous versions, not only in passwords tried, but in length tried as well. The older charsets were limited to 8 char's, jtr source can be edited and compiled to use longer ones I believe was the case. To generate your own rockyou charset: sed 's/^/:/' < rockyou.txt >rockyou.pot (use sed to artificially create a pot file - add a leading colon to each line) john.exe -pot=rockyou.pot -make-charset=rockyou.chr You can apply a filter, present in john.conf (or john.local.conf) that restricts the candidates to something like Alpha only, Digits only or perhaps those that match a Password Policy! There are external modes that already do Policy based filtering, I am not sure a .chr file is best for that. john.exe -pot=rockyou.pot -make-charset=rockyou.chr -ext=filter_lanman -rich
