Abstract
When users choose passwords to secure their computers,
data, or Internet service accounts, they tend to create passwords that
are easy to remember. Probabilistic methods for password cracking profit
from this fact, and allow the attackers and forensic investigators to guess
user passwords more precisely. In this paper, we present our additions
to a technique based on probabilistic context-free grammars. By modifi-
cation of existing principles, we show how to guess more passwords for
the same time, and how to reduce the total number of guesses without
higher impact on success rate.
