Describe what rainbow tables are and how they work, generate one, and demonstrate the rainbow crack tool on a Windows password hash.
- Rainbow tables are a relatively recent approach…to recovering passwords from hashes.…They work by pre-computing a series of chains…of alternating hashes and passwords created using…a series of what are known hashing and reduction functions.…Rainbow tables are relatively large but not unmanageable.…The hash for a small, alphabetic Windows password…can be cracked using a table of around 600 megabyte.…And a password which uses alphanumerics…would require a three gigabyte rainbow table.…
Tables can be much larger, hundreds of gigabytes.…A number of pre-computed ones are available for download…from the two sites shown, The Rainbow Crack Project…and Free Rainbow Tables.…Kali provides a number of tools…for doing rainbow table attacks.…The main one being RainbowCrack.…We can find this in the top "Password Attacks" menu.…Also in the offline "attack" sub-menu.…Let's select it.…Firstly, let's look at what's in the RainbowCrack directory.…
Here we see not only the main password recovery program,…"rcrack," but also some utility programs.…
This course will give prospective ethical hackers a short overview of the tools in Kali Linux. Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore shows how to set up a virtual environment for testing, configure Kali Linux, and install toolsets for information gathering, vulnerability assessment, password and hash cracking, and target exploitation.
Because businesses are connected, they are also exposed. Vulnerability testing helps organizations limit that exposure. This course will help you explore the careers, techniques, and tools behind ethical hacking—one of the most competitive and sought-after IT security skills.
