Weaponizing Statistics: How Advanced Password Crackers Really Work
Password crackers are an indispensable tool of security penetration test teams, but they don’t actually “crack” passwords. They guess, and they guess really fast. However, fast is not good enough to crack most passwords. It can take a long time to get the data the customer needs to really understand why fixing a weak password policy is worth the trouble. Enter ByePass; an automation software with enough smarts to learn how users are forming their passwords in order to make password audits fast and effective…and help make security penetration tests effective at showing decision-makers the benefits of better security.
