Pyrit 0.2.3 goes live

Ok Pyrit 0.2.3 has been packaged and is now considered the currently stable version. How is that?

Apart from the *much* improved source-code, the more or less visible changes are already described here. There is also a lot of new documentation for Installation, Usage and Troubleshooting.

All the code can once again be found here.

Oh and did I mention Pyrit 0.2.3 seems to be the first open-source program *ever* that has working OpenCL-code in a regular release? “But nobody can use it!” you say? Details!

Enjoy Blackhat & defcon.



  1. ccccccccccoooooooooooooooooooollllllllllllllll

  2. good pyrit reachs stable version.
    About “the *much* improved source-code” it is referred to more k/s?
    I mean , did you test the different releases (0.2.1, 0.2.2, 0.2.3) of pyrit on the SAME hardware and see that there are more k/s? if yes, how much is the increase k/s moving up form 0.2.1 to 0.2.3? it will be nice to know (i am sick for tests and benchmarks, yes)

    • The code is much easier to understand and maintain. It should also perform better on fast (> 60.000 PMKs/s) machines.

      I don’t do benchmarks between versions

  3. pyrit benchmark in BackTrak4 (prefinal live) reports 7440k/s. (i duno version of pyrit in BT4)
    I recompiled pyrit on ubuntu 9.04 at 64bit (pyrit 0.2.3, CUDA driver 190.18, cudatoolkit 2.3) and pyrit benchmark is 6900-7000 k/s.
    Was wrong? I tried to not start X server in ubuntu and test pyrit from command line, but it never reach 7440 k/s. Maybe thre are some flag to set during compilation to use GPU in optimized way? Thanks for help.
