After releasing a password cracking tool that instantly reveals cached passwords to Web sites stored in Microsoft Internet Explorer and other popular Microsoft applications including Outlook last week, the Moscow based company announced a new version of its distributed password recovery tool that shows a 20x performance gain.
The tool helps break complex passwords, recover strong encryption keys and unlock popular document formats as well as
hack into test wireless network security. The software will even help you crack into someone’s your new iPhone 4 if you forgot your password.
Moscow based ElcomSoft, developer of the software, announced a 20-fold gain in recovery speed compared to Intel current top of the line quad-core CPUs by using NVIDIA’s newest high-end video accelerators for its password recovery tools.
The new NVIDIA Fermi-based video boards exceed benchmark speeds of previous-generation NVIDIA Tesla by doubling the already impressive password recovery speed of enterprise-grade Tesla solutions based on the previous-generation chipsets. ElcomSoft is anticipating the release of Fermi-based Tesla to further accelerate password recovery in enterprise environments.
Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery enables hardware-accelerated password recovery for a variety of applications, including Microsoft Office documents, Adobe PDF, PGP, personal security certificates and exchange keys, MD5 hashes, Oracle passwords, Windows and UNIX login and domain passwords. ElcomSoft’s patent-pending acceleration technologies and zero-overhead scalability to over 10,000 workstations make Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery a high-end solution offering the fastest recovery.
By adding support for the latest NVIDIA chipset, ElcomSoft accelerates Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery with the widest range of hardware, including ATI Radeon 4000 and 5000 series boards, consumer NVIDIA cards, and enterprise-grade NVIDIA Tesla solutions. NVIDIA Tesla S2050/S2070 are claimed to surpass everything announced by NVIDIA’s competitors, but will be available only in Q2/Q3’2010.
Pricing ranges from $599 which supports up to 20 clients or “agents” working to help crack the passwords, through $4,999 which supports up to 2500 clients.
