ElcomSoft Employs ATI and NVIDIA for Its Password Cracking Business

Moscow, Russian Federation (PressExposure) February 05, 2009 -- Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor helps system administrators to audit wireless network security by attempting to recover the original WPA/WPA2 PSK password protecting Wi-Fi communications. By employing hardware acceleration technologies offered by both 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, and allows its users to build desktop supercomputers affordably.

About ElcomSoft GPU Acceleration

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 (ATI HD series, NVIDIA GeForce 8, 9 or 200 series), 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 algorithms combined with the most effective dictionary attacks to allow carrying out a password audit within a limited timeframe.

About Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor

Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor offers a cost-efficient way to probe how secure a wireless network is. Simply plugging one or more video cards manufactured by either ATI or NVIDIA allows building a desktop supercomputer to break Wi-Fi passwords faster than anything.

Equipped with advanced dictionary attacks with deep mutations, Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor is the first commercially available wireless password audit tool to employ both ATI and NVIDIA hardware to speed up password recovery. The revolutionary, patent pending GPU acceleration technology supports up to four video cards to provide fastest possible recovery of the original WPA/WPA2 PSK password.
