Description[edit | edit source]

Hashcat is a high-speed password recovery tool. It can be run on Windows, Linux, and macOS. Additionally, Hashcat supports AMD and nVidia GPUs for enhanced performance password-cracking. It bills itself as the world's fastest password cracker, and it has support for running in a distributed manner, so multiple machines can provide a password-cracking speed boost, all this while allowing for multiple password hash types being cracked simultaneously. Hashcat supports cracking over 350 different hashing algorithms. Basically, if it exists in a widely-used tool, Hashcat can probably help break it.
