What is the performance of a single ztex-15y board when used to crack WPA PSK password? (passwords/sec)? Currently none since it's not one of the 7 hash types that we support on those boards. There's this academic paper about implementation of WPA PSK on FPGA: https://eprint.iacr.org/2016/547 On ZTEX 1.15y, they get 87k p/s for WPA PSK. I'm not aware of them having ever released their designs and host code, so it's not something you can use. If we approached this task, we'd probably get somewhat higher performance (up to 2x higher), but we have no such plans currently. > 2. Is it possible to conect such device to a notebook using some kind of USB rack? Yes. For one or a few devices, you just connect them directly to the laptop's USB ports. For more than just a few, you need hub(s). Either way, you also need 12V DC power adapters, but that's cheap and easy. > I have found some devices Where? I know quite some JtR users would like to purchase those boards now, but have difficulty finding them available for sale. So maybe you could help the community by sharing your source for those boards, after you've purchased whatever quantity you might need for your own needs (if you need one of the 7 supported hash types cracked on those boards, not just the unsupported WPA PSK).
