Kali Linux | Best Password Cracking Tools

Kali Linux includes some of the best password attack tools that necessary for every security professional and pentester. I have included a list of the best tool Kali Linux 2020.1 offers for password attacking. All of these tools are open-source and available in Kali full images by default.

1. CeWL

It is a ruby language-based tool that connects a unique URL to a definite depth; it follows external links and outputs a list of words that are used for password crackers like John’s password cracking tool. It can also be launched in command line terminal windows, files already bagged FAB that uses raw data extractions methods to create lists from already downloaded.

You Can use it using type cewl --help In your terminal


2. John the ripper

“John the ripper” is a fast and reliable toolkit that contains numerous cracking modes, and it is highly customizable and configurable according to your requirements. By default, John can work with many hash types, including traditional DES, bigcrypt, FreeBSD MD5, Blowfish, BSDI extended DES, Kerberos, and MS Windows LM hashes. It also supports other DES-based tripcodes, but they need to be configured. It can also work on SHA hashes and Sun MD5 hashes. It also supports OpenSSH private keys, PDF files, ZIP, RAR archives, Kerberos TGT. 

It has many scripts for various purposes such as unafs (warning about weak passwords), unshadows (passwords and shadows files combined), unique (duplicates are removed from wordlist).

john the ripper also abaviable in GUI mode so, type johnny in your terminal for gui mode and below in cli mode
sudo john


 3. Hashcat

This is one of the most popular, fast, and expert password recovery tools. It supports 5 unique attack modes for 300 plus highly-optimized hashing algos. It can support CPU, GPU, and many more hardware accelerators and helps to work on distributed password cracking. It has numerous different options to support multiple arguments during password recovery.

hashcat --help

4. RainbowCrack

RainbowCrack is a general propose implementation of Philippe Oechslin’s faster time-memory trade-off technique. It crack hashes with rainbow tables. RainbowCrack uses time-memory tradeoff algorithm to crack hashes. 

It differs from brute force hash crackers. A brute force hash cracker generate all possible plaintexts and compute the corresponding hashes on the fly, then compare the hashes with the hash to be cracked. Once a match is found, the plaintext is found. If all possible plaintexts are tested and no match is found, the plaintext is not found. With this type of hash cracking, all intermediate computation results are discarded. A time-memory tradeoff hash cracker need a pre-computation stage, at the time all plaintext/hash pairs within the selected hash algorithm, charset, plaintext length are computed and results are stored in files called rainbow table. 

It is time consuming to do this kind of computation. But once the one time pre-computation is finished, hashes stored in the table can be cracked with much better performance than a brute force cracker.



 5. Hydra

This password attack tool is a centralized parallel login crack with several attack protocols. It is highly flexible, quick, reliable, and customizable for the addition of new modules. This tool can obtain unauthorized access remotely to a system, and that is very important for security professionals. It works with Cisco AAA, Cisco authorization, FTP, HTTPS GET/POST/PROXY, IMAP, MySQL, MSSQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SIP, POP3, SMTP, SSHkey, SSH and many more.

hydra -h


 6. Ncrack

A very fast network authentication cracking tool that helps organizations to secure their networks against password attacks. It searches for poor passwords by testing their hosts and networking devices. It has several components and works like the NMAP tool having a dynamic engine to work on network feedback. It has fast and reliable auditing services for multiple hosts. It is very easy to use and has sophisticated brute force attacks, timing templates, and a flexible interface for complete control of the network processes. It supports multiple protocols such as SSH, FTP, HTTPS, TELNET, IMAP, SIP, SMB, PostgreSQL, MS-SQL, MySQL, MongoDB, and many more.

ncrack -h


 7. Ophcrack

Ophcrack is an opensource windows password cracking tool. It is based on rainbow tables and is very efficient. It has a graphical user interface as well as a command-line interface and supports multi-platforms. It has audit mode, brute force mode, debugging mode, loading hashes.



 8. THC-pptp-bruter

This brute forcer tool works against pptp VPN endpoints. It is a standalone package and uses TCP port 1723. It supports MSchapV2 authentication and is tested against enormous cisco gateways and windows files. This brute force tool tries 300 passwords in a second and exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft anti-brute-force operation.



 9. Crunch

This password attack tool generates a wordlist where standard or customized character set can be specified for usage. It generates all the possible password combinations in a very quick process. It can also break up the results by file size and support in case of any difficulty. It supports numbers, symbols. Crunch supports uppercase and lowercase letters and also generates a status report of multiple files.
