It is my first experience with this kind of communication. To the point: I'd like to make a wrapper around JtR which would allow me to control the starting position and the size of the chunk. The aim is to use the wrapper in some distributed system. Now the question is, are there some options to do this? I'm in of something similar to Hashcat's --skip and -- limit. I know that JtR has --node parameter but it doesn't seem too intuitive nor precise when it comes to the exact sizes of chunks. I want to use some dynamic scheduling algorithms. So that I can control for how long will the machine be in use. The algorithm will then create the chunk of such a size that given machine will compute it in given time, let's say a minute). I guess I could abuse session file for specification of the starting point (Hashcat's --skip) but I don't see anything that could be used as Hashcat's --limit. In JtR's context, the things I need are provided by the Markov mode the start and end is but then I lack at least specification of the mask. So is there some way how to achieve what I need using John? Or is it even possible to add these tiny things to John? Is the generator build the way that this would be possible implement? I could try to do it myself I just need some info whether it is worth the time or whether I'd have to rewrite half of the John to make it work. Thanks for any information regarding the topic in advance. Vojtech Vecera
