Re: Rainbow tables on Linux?
I think you can't use rainbow tables on linux because it uses a salt http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_(cryptography) ; that's why john is using bruteforce

Is it possible to use rainbow tables with a password cracker on Linux
like 'john'? If so, how? If not, is it possible with any other
password cracker on Linux?
I know about Ophcrack but it seems to be geared towards the Windows
I have John now running for 74 hours to try and crack one
password. That is on a 2xquadcore Intel server.
By the way, I am not trying to break in. I am testing the
effectiveness of John.
