Hardware Acceleration

ElcomSoft has pioneered many software innovations that have made it easier to recover lost passwords from the operating system, Microsoft Office products, Adobe PDF files, Intuit Quicken, OpenOffice, ZIP and RAR archives and a variety of other applications. The latest development revolutionizes the speed of password recovery without requiring expensive hardware.

Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery employs a revolutionary, patented technology to accelerate password recovery when a compatible NVIDIA or AMD graphics card is present in addition to the CPU-only mode. Currently supporting all GeForce boards from 400 to 1000-series GPUs including (as well as NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla) and AMD Radeon HD from 5000-series to R2/R4/R7/R9 GPUs, the acceleration technology offloads parts of computational-heavy processing onto the fast and highly scalable processors featured in the latest graphic accelerators.

The acceleration technology developed by ElcomSoft allows the execution of mathematically intensive password recovery code on the massively parallel computational elements found in modern graphic accelerators. The GPU acceleration is unique to Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery, making password recovery up to fifty times faster compared to password recovery methods that only use the computer’s main CPU.

Important note: hardware acceleration (for specific file formats and algorithms only, see the above chart for details) works properly only on Windows Server 2003/2008/2012 and Windows 7/8/8.1/10 (32-bit or 64-bit); specific versions of NVIDIA/AMD drivers are required; some other restrictions apply (e.g. for some file formats, it is implemented for brute-force attack only, while dictionary attack only works on the CPU, regardless the settings).

Mac OS Forensics

Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery recognizes the importance of Mac OS X, offering extensive support for a wide range of password protecting various aspects of the system. The tool enables investigators breaking into encrypted volumes protected with FileVault 2, accessing encrypted DMG files and recovering OS X user account passwords. In addition, Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery can recover OS X keychain passwords.

How GPU Acceleration Works

Using brute force attack to recover passwords, it is possible, though time-consuming, to recover passwords from popular applications with the power of the computer’s main CPU. For example, an eight-character Windows Vista logon password is as strong as about 55 trillion possible passwords. Windows Vista uses NTLM hashing by default, so using a modern dual-core PC you could try up to 10 million passwords per second, and perform a complete analysis in about two months. With ElcomSoft’s new GPU acceleration technology, the process would take only three to five days, depending upon the CPU and GPU.

Until recently, graphic cards’ processing units could not be used for applications such as password recovery. Older graphics chips could only perform floating-point calculations of varying precision, while most cryptographic algorithms require precise fixed-point mathematics.

The modern chips can process fixed-point calculations. With several hundred or even thousand processing units, these powerful GPU chips are much more effective than CPUs in performing many of these calculations.

By utilizing the new processing power offered by today’s GPUs (currently, all GeForce from 400- to 1000-series GPUs, NVIDIA Quadro, NVIDIA Tesla and AMD Radeon from 5000 to R9 series GPUs are supported) ElcomSoft offers the recovery speed increase by a factor of twenty, simply by hooking up with a cheap video card’s onboard GPU. High-end PC motherboards can work with as many as four video cards, allowing for even faster password recovery applications for extremely modest increase in hardware costs.

Networking

Linear Scalability

Unlike competition, Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery is not ‘virtually’ or ‘practically’ linear in scalability. By doubling the number of PCs working on a password, you cut time required to recover a password by half.

By only transferring the bare minimum of information over the network, Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery allows for massively parallel operation, and scales linearly to as many as 10,000 workstations with no scalability overhead.

Distributed Recovery, Control via Management Console

Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery enables distributed work over the LAN, Internet, or both. Minimum bandwidth requirements ensure no scalability overhead even for the slowest connections.

The convenient management console allows controlling Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery from any networked PC.
