Abstract

This technical report describes the architecture of Fitcrack distributed password cracking system developed within the Integrated platform for analysis of digital data from security incidents project. Fitcrack serves as an open-source solution for recovering plaintext passwords from various cryptographic hashes, as well as a platform for research and development of new password cracking methodologies. The report documents both server and client sides of the system, provides detailed description of all subsystems and their interfaces, and clarifies the protocols used for communication between the server and clients. In addition to the original report, this updated version contains the description of new modules and server daemons, PRINCE attack, PCFG attack, and other enhancements.
