Password Attacks

Hashcat – Fastest and Most Advanced Password Recovery Utility

hashcat is the world’s fastest and most advanced password recovery utility, supporting five unique modes of attack for over 200 highly-optimized hashing algorithms. hashcat currently supports CPUs, GPUs, and other hardware accelerators on Linux, Windows, and macOS, and has facilities to help enable distributed password cracking.

GPU Driver requirements:

  • AMD GPUs on Linux require “RadeonOpenCompute (ROCm)” Software Platform (1.6.180 or later)
  • AMD GPUs on Windows require “AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition” (15.12 or later)
  • Intel CPUs require “OpenCL Runtime for Intel Core and Intel Xeon Processors” (16.1.1 or later)
  • Intel GPUs on Linux require “OpenCL 2.0 GPU Driver Package for Linux” (2.0 or later)
  • Intel GPUs on Windows require “OpenCL Driver for Intel Iris and Intel HD Graphics”
  • NVIDIA GPUs require “NVIDIA Driver” (367.x or later
