MWR InfoSecurity will be presenting a workshop on password cracking, and the techniques involved in cracking hashes. The workshop will cover the basics of password cracking and leveraging basic techniques to optimise attacks against large hashlists as well as targetted attacks. You will also learn what makes a strong password. Finally, there’ll be a competition as to who can crack the most hashes.
It would be beneficial for participants to set up OpenCL on their laptops befor...ehand to work with hashcat v3.30. This can be tested by running a benchmark with the command 'hashcat -b -m 0' as well as running the example scripts that come with hashcat. Typically, OpenCL comes with the drivers for your CPU / GPU, and having the latest version of these provide OpenCL. If this is not the case, there will be guides online for your OS and hardware. The SUCSS committee can help set this up in advance and there are links to assist below.
There will be pizza + beer/cider.
