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 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 8, 9, 100, 200, 400, 500 and 600-series GPUs (as well as NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla) and AMD Radeon HD 5000-, 6000- and 7000-series 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. In addition, Distributed Password Recovery also supports Tableau TACC1441 hardware accelerators.

Broad Compatibility

Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery supports a variety of applications and file formats, allowing password recovery from Office documents, Adobe PDF files, PGP disks and archives, personal security certificates and exchange keys, MD5 hashes and Oracle passwords, Windows and UNIX login passwords.

1 - Sorry, support for this format/encryption is temporary unavailable.

2 - GPU acceleration for this format/encryption is implemented for brute-force attack only; dictionary attack (regardless of GPU settings) only works on the CPU.

3 - AES-NI is the new instruction set available in some modern Intel CPUs; for more details, see blog post.

Important note: hardware acceleration (for specific file formats and algorithms only, see the above chart for details) works properly only on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit); specific versions of NVIDIA/AMD drivers are required; some other restrictions apply. For more details, see GPU Acceleration Frequently Asked Questions.

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 recently introduced chips can process fixed-point calculations. With as much as 4 GB of onboard video memory and several hundred 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 8, 9, 100, 200, 400, 500, 600, 700--series GPUs, NVIDIA Quadro, NVIDIA Tesla  and AMD Radeon 5000, 6000, 7000 and R9 series GPUs are supported) ElcomSoft offers the recovery speed increase by a factor of twenty, simply by hooking up with a $150 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 over LAN and Internet

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.

Control via Management Console

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