Wisecracker is an open source high performance distributed
cryptanalysis framework that leverages GPUs and multiple CPUs. It
allows security researchers to write their own cryptanalysis tools
that can distribute brute-force cryptanalysis work across multiple
systems with multiple multi-core processors and GPUs. Security
researchers can also use the sample tools provided out-of-the-box. The
differentiating aspect of Wisecracker is that it uses OpenCL and MPI
together to distribute the work across multiple systems, each having
multiple CPUs and/or GPUs.
As an example an MD5 reversing for 6-8 character strings is provided.
