Password123456: Summoning the Password-Cracking Beast

About this webinar

Recorded: March 20, 2019

Learning how to crack passwords is fun and incredibly useful for assessing the security of your IT environment. It used to be a considerable time and money sponge, requiring you to drop a big chunk of change on a beefy desktop and invest some serious time in building and configuring it. The good news is that now, thanks to the power of the cloud, we can build a rocking virtual cracking box that can try millions of password guesses per second — all for about a dollar an hour.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Build a Linux-based password-cracking VM in minutes
  • Install and configure cracking tools and word lists
  • Crack Active Directory and wireless passwords
  • Make sure your password policy is strong enough to resist password cracking
