Password Cracking (1-page Discussion)
Good password hygiene is an important component of securing any network. Attackers often attempt to compromise passwords. For this reason, it is good practice to use a unique password for each website, service, and application. Attackers have specialized tools to assist in cracking passwords; however, some passwords are more difficult to crack than others. Constructing unique, secure passwords may be challenging but some of this difficulty can be alleviated by using a password keeper.
You have been monitoring the traffic on your network using passive sniffing tools such as EtherApe, Dsniff, and Omnipeek. During your analysis, you notice a large amount of interesting traffic coming from two unknown devices. The devices have been isolated on a decoy network. You are asked to see if you can compromise the unknown devices using a password cracking tool so that you can gain a better understanding of the attackers’ intentions.
