ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. puts ATI and NVIDIA hardware to work accelerating the recovery of Wi-Fi passwords. The newly released Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor 1.0 benefits from the ability of
last-generation video cards manufactured by ATI and NVIDIA to munch numbers
faster, allowing its users to recover Wi-Fi passwords faster than ever before.
Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor helps system administrators to audit
wireless network security by attempting to recover the original WPA/WPA2 PSK
password encrypting Wi-Fi communications. By employing hardware acceleration
technologies offered by two major video card manufacturers, ATI and NVIDIA,
Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor becomes one of the fastest and most
cost-efficient Wi-Fi password recovery and wireless security audit tools on
GPU-Accelerated Wi-Fi Password Recovery
The latest generation of ElcomSoft’s proprietary GPU acceleration
technology supports, for the first time, both ATI and NVIDIA hardware. The
technology offloads parts of computational-heavy processing onto the fast and
highly scalable processors featured in the latest ATI and NVIDIA boards. When
one or more compatible ATI or NVIDIA graphics cards are present, the
patent-pending GPU acceleration technology kicks in automatically.
This time, ElcomSoft has used the technology to accelerate the recovery
of WPA/WPA2 PSK passwords, allowing network administrators to perform timed
attacks on their wireless networks in order to determine how secure exactly
their networks are. Considering WPA/WPA2 strong security with the minimum
password length of 8 characters, Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor employs
the highest-performance dictionary-attack with advanced mutations to allow
carrying out a password audit within a limited timeframe.
