System and Method of Probabilistic Passwords Cracking
Professor Aggarwal and his team have created a system and method of probabilistic passwords cracking.
This technology is a novel password cracking system that generates password structures in highest probability order. Our program, called UnLock, automatically creates a probabilistic context-free grammar (CFG) based upon a training set of previously disclosed passwords.
This CFG then allows to generate word-mangling rules, and from them, password guesses to be used in password cracking attacks.
- Effectiveness demonstrated on real password sets
- Technology capable of cracking significantly more passwords in the same number of guesses as compared to publicly available standard password cracking systems.
- Tested in digital forensic missions
