MOSCOW, January 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. puts ATI and NVIDIA hardware to work accelerating the recovery of Wi-Fi passwords. The newly released Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor 1.0 benefits from the ability of last-generation video cards manufactured by ATI and NVIDIA to munch numbers faster, allowing its users to recover Wi-Fi passwords faster than ever before.

Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor helps system administrators to audit wireless network security by attempting to recover the original WPA/WPA2 PSK password encrypting Wi-Fi communications. By employing hardware acceleration technologies offered by two major video card manufacturers, ATI and NVIDIA, Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor becomes one of the fastest and most cost-efficient Wi-Fi password recovery and wireless security audit tools on the market.

GPU-Accelerated Wi-Fi Password Recovery

The latest generation of ElcomSoft's proprietary GPU acceleration technology supports, for the first time, both ATI and NVIDIA hardware. The technology offloads parts of computational-heavy processing onto the fast and highly scalable processors featured in the latest ATI and NVIDIA boards. When one or more compatible ATI or NVIDIA graphics cards are present, the patent-pending GPU acceleration technology kicks in automatically.

This time, ElcomSoft has used the technology to accelerate the recovery of WPA/WPA2 PSK passwords, allowing network administrators to perform timed attacks on their wireless networks in order to determine how secure exactly their networks are. Considering WPA/WPA2 strong security with the minimum password length of 8 characters, Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor employs the highest-performance dictionary-attack with advanced mutations to allow carrying out a password audit within a limited timeframe.
