Schneier on Security Wordlists & Password Profiling with CRUNCH, WyD, & CUPP Today I am going to show you how to use three (3) different tools in Linux (Backtrack 5) for creating targeted wordlists to help speed up and increase the chance of success for your dictionary attacks. I will be covering the use of CRUNCH for pure wordlist generation, and then I will cover the use of WyD and CUPP which use password profiling techniques to create targeted wordlists to narrow your attacks. I will provide the written walk through here with a video at the end. Let's begin with CRUNCH... CRUNCH is a wordlist generator based on the user specified character set. It takes the character set designated by the user and generates all combinations and permutations possible into a nice new wordlist for you to use in your dictionary/bruteforce tools. You will need to download and extract using the following methods: COMMAND: tar -zxvf crunch-3.0.1.tgz COMMAND: cd crunch-3.0.1/ COMMAND: make && make install Basic syntax of CRUNCH looks like this (See MAN Pages for details): o -t *^ssw@rd%

In Why bouncing droplets are a pretty good model of quantum mechanics, we solve an outstanding mystery in physics (see blog posts, three previous papers and older blog posts). Reading this may harm your computer – The psychology of malware warnings analyses what sort of text we should put in a warning if we actually want the user to pay attention to it (blog). 2013 highlights included Rendezvous, a prototype search engine for code; a demonstration that we could steal your PIN via your phone camera and microphone; an analysis of SDN Authentication; and papers on quantum computing and Bell's inequality. 2010 highlights included a paper on why Chip and PIN is broken for which we got coverage on Newsnight and a best paper award (later, the banks tried to suppress this research).
