TrueCrack Beta Brute-Force Password for TrueCrypt Released
TrueCrack is a brute-force password cracker for TrueCrypt volume files. It works on Linux and it is optimized with Nvidia Cuda technology.
It works with cripted volumes with the following algorithms:
- PBKDF2 (defined in PKCS5 v2.0) based on RIPEMD160 Key derivation function.
- XTS block cipher mode of operation used for hard disk encryption based on AES.
TrueCrack can work in two different modes of use:
- Dictionary attack: read the passwords from a file of words (one password for line).
- Charset attack: generate the passwords from a charset of symbols defined by the user (for example: all possible strings of n characters from the charset “abc” ).
How to RUN it?
Dictionary attack from a wordlist file:
./truecrack -t TRUECRYPT_VOLUME -w WORDLIST_FILE -b 1024
Charset attack from an alphabet (ex. abc) with the maximum length(32) for single word:
./truecrack -t TRUECRYPT_VOLUME -c abc -m 32 -b 1024
