Password123456: Summoning the Password Cracking Beast

About this webinar

Recorded: February 19, 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. 

By the end of 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
