Please consider joining the passwords mailing list and bringing this up in there: https://www.openwall.com/lists/passwords/ Also, you don't appear to be subscribed to john-users - or at least not under this address (I used my list admin powers to find out). Please consider subscribing so that you don't miss replies and are able to participate in discussions (without creating new threads for each reply, which would make at least me angry). As to your actual question, one of the commonly used password lists is RockYou, downloadable from here: https://wiki.skullsecurity.org/Passwords There's also the newer and larger Pwned Passwords list, but it's in the form of fast hashes that you need to (re-)crack, not plaintexts: https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords Of course, people already re-cracked nearly all of those hashes, but I'm unaware of the results of such work being freely redistributed. You can probably re-crack them quickly by using plaintext lists from: https://hashes.org If/when you bring this up on the passwords list, I suggest you also explain your research project - chances are people will tell you how it's already been done or/and is inferior to what's already been done, and then you could try to come up with something novel or/and improved and re-focus your project accordingly. There's a lot of work in this area, so innovating is non-trivial. Alexander
