And you may find yourself in control of a large database; in another part of the world. And you may find yourself in a beautiful table; viewing a beautiful hash. And you may ask yourself, well, how do I crack this?
Sometimes the need to crack a hash, password, file or document arises and your laptop or home machine simply won't cut it. When facing this challenge research will most likely conclude there are several options that may include utilizing a 3rd party, building a cracking rig or employing cloud-based solutions.
Leveraging Amazon AWS via Terraform, Ansible and more, this presentation kicks off with a live deployment of a multi-node, scalable cloud-based cracking setup using enough DevOps tools that will guarantee a winning buzzword bingo card.
While the cloud-based deployment is in progress we will discuss the pros and cons of the leading options including benchmarks comparing self-built rigs to cloud deployments and the economics of each. If the demo gods are kind, the presentation will conclude with several live demonstrations of cracking hashes, passwords and files in our newly provisioned cracking environment.
Attendees will walk away with an understanding of deployment tools and techniques, potential computational power and economic factors relating to the deployment of an extremely powerful, multi-node, cloud-based password cracking environment.
