It utilizes common human paradigms for constructing passwords and can output the full wordlist as well as rules compatible with Hashcat and John the Ripper." This reminded me of the following thoughts I had earlier: Maybe we should enhance Johnny with optional GUI-based construction of wordlist rules. Additionally, now that we support many end-user password recovery use cases, it's desirable to have some UI (a web page or GUI app?) comfortable for a typical user to specify whatever they recall about the password. It should actively inquire the user about that, as (from my experience) people may be at a loss on what kind of information to provide despite of actually having the information. This should result in automatic selection of cracking mode(s) to use and configuration of those. Ideally, it should also inform the user of the resulting keyspace and expected attack duration (maybe given a pre-specified speed that the user can edit). Alexander
