Rainbow Tables

26 07 2010

After getting passwords’ hash from the target machine locally or remotely, we need to crack the hash. The most efficient tool to used at present is the technique called Rainbow Table.

Rainbow Table is a table which calculated all possible password hash value in advance and stored those hash in the table. The time to compare the hash value is a lot faster than bruteforece then generate a hash and make a comparison.

Rainbow Table can be downloaded for free and it is quite nice to crack the password in XP,Vista and even in Linux.
