GPU Password Recovery For Rar Archives

September 6th, 2009 by Dev Team in Uncategorized

The latest video card generation that is manufactured by ATI and Nvidia can be used to speed up password recovery attempts tremendously. Toolkits like Nvidia’s CUDA offer drivers and development examples to aid developer’s in the integration of gpu accelerated password recovery programs. One of the programs that is making use of the gpu to recover passwords is Rar GPU Password Recovery. The supported video cards at this point in time are ATI HD RV7×0s cards that include ATI Radeon 4870, 4890 and 4770 or Nvidia cards supported CUDA including GTX 260, 8600 GTS or 8600 GT. It is also recommended to have the latest Catalyst or Geforce drivers installed.

The developer provides some plain numbers to show the effectiveness of using the GPU to recover a rar password with four characters:

* ~168 passwords per second on single core of Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
* ~325 passwords per second on 8600 GT
* ~3120 passwords per second on ATI HD4850
* ~2075 passwords per second on GTX260/192SP

The performance of the listed ATI card is almost 20 times that of a password recovery where only the cpu is used. The password recovery software is a command line utility and the developer is offering extensive information on the possible parameters that can be used to recover the password. The suggested length of the password should not exceed six characters although it is theoretically possible to start a password recovery for a password with up to 17 chars.

WIFI Cracking Using GPUs

October 10th, 2008 by admin in News, Password Info, Wireless

We all know cracking techniques through graphics cards speciifically CUDA based NVidia is on the rise. Now the programmers have set their sights on WIFI cracking. One group reportedly bored through WPA and WPA2 encryptions using a brute-force technique juiced with one of Nvidia’s latest graphics cards . The card supposedly made the “password recovery” process up to 10,000 percent faster than CPU-based cracking. (more…)

Does it live up to it’s name? Right now on nVidia 9600GT/C2D 3Ghz CUDA version does 350 M keys/sec, SSE2 version does 108 M keys/sec.

  • CUDA version only:nVidia GeForce 8xxx and up, at least 256mb of video memory.
  • LATEST nVidia-driver with CUDA support.Standard drivers might be a bit older (as CUDA 2.0 is still beta)
  • CPU with SSE2 support (P4, Core2Duo, Athlon64, Sempron64, Phenom).
  • Recommended 64-bit OS (WinXP 64 or Vista64). 32-bit version is also available.
