In most organizations passwords are what make the difference between keeping cyber criminals out—và falling victyên khổng lồ a cyber-attack. And for the multitude of applications, systems và infrastructure of so many organizations, the only security control preventing unauthorized access is a simple password somewhere between 4 and 127 characters long.


A password—sometimes called a passcode, passphrase, PIN or secret—is used to ensure that only authorized employees or users can access applications & systems. A password is usually combined with an identifier (typically a username or tin nhắn address) khổng lồ determine who is accessing the system, lớn verify the authentiđô thị of that identity. A password should be known only lớn the user, and never shared.


Ordinarily, a password is a mix of character combinations such as letters, numbers và symbols used to authenticate an identity or to lớn verify authorization lớn access a system or application. But not all login systems enforce the same security best practices. Different authentication systems require different lengths & complexities of password strings, và this presents a challenge. Some systems have mix limits on password length, some have mix limits on complexity, và some systems even require all lowercase characters.

Another popular login method is the PIN. This typically refers khổng lồ a number-only password, usually 4 – 6 numbers, và is commonly used on thiết bị di động devices. As a best practice you should know the limitations on login systems so you can ensure the highest possible security is configured và used. And make sure your security solution is usable & not too complex or users will revert to poor password hygiene habits, lượt thích reusing passwords across multiple systems & credentials.


Most login systems use a cryptographic technique known as a hash to lớn store the password in a database, and that hash should be a one-directional only algorithm. No one other than the user or system should ever know the clear text password.

The most common hash used in the past was SHA1 until security researchers discovered ‘collisions’; this is when two different inputs create the same output. This was bad for security and meant that SHA1 could no longer be used to store passwords. It is important khổng lồ know what hash algorithm is used & whether it also includes salt: additional random data added to lớn the input đầu vào.

So, how vày cyber criminals crack your password to lớn gain access khổng lồ applications và systems? 

I worked with my colleague Giulio Neri lớn create an excellent webinar that answers this question và demonstrates a live sầu privileged trương mục hack:5 Most Popular Password Cracking Tools: Protect Your Enterprise

The majority of cyber criminals will want lớn use the easiest, stealthiestleast costly way of stealing your passwords. And one of the easiest methods is phishing—they simply ask you for the password. This technique takes advantage of your trusting nature, & when directed to a kém chất lượng login website (that looks perfectly authentic) you hand over your username & password to the attacker as you log in. Here are some of the most comtháng techniques for getting passwords:

Ask the user for their password pretending to lớn be an authentic internet serviceCraông xã the password using brute force or dictionary attacksDiscover a vulnerability in the application, bypassing authentication

Let’s take a closer look at password cracking techniques:

Before a cyber criminal can get to lớn work on your password, they must first get the hash, which as previously mentioned is the cryptographic store value of your password. There are tools available lớn get those hashes:

This is what a typical password cracking flow looks like:

5 Popular Password Cracking Tools

Kali Linux – Popular Penetration Testing Distribution Tool

Kali Linux is a well known security tool & it comes in many different bootable options from virtual images to lớn software installations. It even runs on Raspberry PIs. It’s used around the world for penetration testing và by IT security teams protecting their networks or looking for vulnerabilities on their networks. Kali comes with a variety of popular password attaông xã tools out of the box:

CeWLCustom WordList Generator

CeWL is one of my favorite wordlist generators. It allows you to lớn create word lists by spidering websites.

The comm& line options are:

-h = help-d = Depth to spider site-m = Min Word length-w = đầu ra file-e = include emails

MimikatzSecurity phân tích và đo lường Tool 

Mimikatz is another popular security audit tool lớn extract plaintexts passwords, hash, PIN code và Kerberos tickets from memory. It’s mainly used to move laterally around the network elevating privileges one step at a time.

Hashcathashcat is the world’s faschạy thử và most advanced password recovery utility

Hashcát is the tool most commonly used to persize different attaông xã modes such as straight, combinations, brute-force và hybrid attacks.

Comm& line options:

-m = hash type (0 = MD5, 100 = Sha1, 1000 = NTLM)-a = attaông xã mode

0 | Straight1 | Combination3 | Brute-force6 | Hybrid Worddanh mục + Mask7 | Hybrid Mask + Wordlist

Pipal Password Analyzer

As you’re cracking passwords or analyzing password dumps, a great way lớn understvà the passwords is to lớn analyze them using a password analyzer. There are several excellent tools but Pipal is one of my favorites. It’s quite simple, yet powerful.

All you need to vì chưng is run the Pipal ruby against a password file. In the following example I am using the ‘rockyou’ password file:


These are just a few of the top password cracking tools available & as you can see, a password can be easily cracked. So it’s important khổng lồ make the task as difficult as possible for cyber criminals, và ensure that for critical systems và applications a password is not the only security control protecting your environment.

One of the main issues you’ll face is with your end users being responsible for creating and maintaining the passwords they use. Make it easier for them by choosing a security solution that’s usable.

With users often having khổng lồ manage 30 or more different user accounts và credentials, it’s almost certain they’ll reuse passwords or use some variation of the same password. This means once an attacker has compromised one password it’s only a matter of time before they’ll guess the others too, and with tools lượt thích Hashmèo, along with good wordlists và rules—it won’t take long!

Ensure that a password is not the only security control protecting your environment

We must educate end-users and make the right tools available to lớn them so they don’t develop bad security hygiene. Let’s make security usable và easy, & empower users khổng lồ size a stronger front-line defense.
