Passware Kit Agent is a network distributed password recovery worker for Passware Kit Forensic. It runs on Windows (64-bit only), Linux (64-bit only), and Amazon EC2, and has linear performance scalability. Each computer running Passware Kit Agent simultaneously supports multiple CPUs, GPUs, and TPR accelerators. Passware Kit Forensic comes with 5 agents included with ability to purchase more separately as needed.

Mask attack:

Passware adds a new password recovery method: Mask attack that checks passwords matching a specific pattern. A password mask is a string that displays a position of character candidates in a password.

[Image: aQdXb38.jpg]

The new attack allows users to skip unnecessary character combinations and reduces time spent on brute-force password recovery.

The Mask attack is compatible with hashcat mask files (.hcmask).

Password recovery for iWork 2020 files:

Passware Kit recovers passwords for iWork files: documents created with Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. The new version introduces GPU-accelerated password recovery for the latest iWork 10.2.

New modifier: English – Arabic keyboard layout transliteration

The new version of Passware Kit adds support for English <-> Arabic keyboard layout transliteration to the Substitute Characters modifier, which is applicable to all types of brute-force attacks: Dictionary, Xieve, Brute-force, Previous Passwords, etc.

This makes it possible to recover passwords when an English word is typed in the Arabic keyboard layout and vice versa.

GPU acceleration for NTLM hashes:

Passware Kit now accelerates the recovery of Windows user passwords from NTLM hashes. It features a GPU acceleration on both NVIDIA and AMD cards, providing the average speed of 19 billion (!) passwords per second on an NVIDIA 2080Ti.

Decryptum DPR 2080TI-S/12 4U provides the speed of up to 180 billion passwords per second.

Improved performance for Zip AES password recovery:

GPU acceleration of password recovery for Zip archives is even greater now! Passware Kit 2020 v4 recovers Zip AES passwords 40% faster, reaching the speed of 6 million passwords per second on an NVIDIA 2080ti GPU.

Decryptum DPR 2080TI-S/12 4U is now over 280% faster, processing up to 40 million Zip AES passwords per second.

Password recovery for 7-Zip archives on Linux and Mac

Passware Kit Agent for Linux and Passware Kit Forensic for Mac now support password recovery for 7-Zip archives, in addition to the Windows version of the Passware Kit.

Reports saved as CSV files:

Passware Kit is now able to save password recovery reports as CSV files. This makes it easy to process decryption results using third-party tools. CSV reports include the following information: file path, account name, and password.

How to use Passware:

After Encryption Analyzer has listed the encrypted items, you can sort them according to their decryption complexity by clicking the “Recovery Complexity” column. The files are now sorted from “Instant Unprotection” all the way through to the “Brute-force – Slow” strategy. Now, you can start the password recovery process directly from Encryption Analyzer. Simply; select the files that you want to decrypt and click the “Recover Passwords” button, which initiates a batch password recovery process for each of the files.

You can also find images of hard disks encrypted with TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt, PGP, BitLocker, LUKS, etc. All you have to do is to make sure that the option “Scan for encrypted containers and disk images” is enabled 

[Image: 7nLINPu.png] 

The built-in incremental search option can be used to narrow down the set of files to work with. After the analyzer completed  the encrypted evidence, you can find and display files by name, encryption type, or decryption complexity.

Standalone system: 

You can use passware to extract passwords of standalone system from external registry files 

Extracting Passwords from the Acquired Windows Registry: 

[Image: vbQLtph.png] 

The Microsoft Windows operating system stores passwords and other login data for the installed applications on a system disk in the user profile directory, as well as in a hierarchical Windows registry database. By acquiring this database from a target system, computer forensics gain a source of invaluable data essential for an investigation.  

An examiner can use a set of external registry hives and user profile files acquired from the target computer or its disk image for password recovery and electronic evidence discovery. 

The “Standalone System” option, which is used to extract logins and passwords, is available in the Forensic edition of the Passware Kit only. 

Transferring a Password Recovery Process to a Different Computer: 

Did you know that Passware Kit can create a snapshot of a password recovery process at any time and resume it on a different computer? 

Running a password recovery attack, especially for multiple files or drives, might be a long process that requires a lot of hardware resources. In some cases, it might be necessary to put an attack on hold to launch a different attack, or to resume the same attack on a more powerful hardware setup with multiple Passware Kit Agents. 

Passwords extraction from Windows systems protected with PIN/Picture password: 

Passware Kit adds support for Windows 10 and 8 standalone systems protected with Windows Hello: PIN or Picture password. It recovers the user PIN or Picture password and extracts passwords and other data from the registry. 

Working with Passware Kit Portable:

This is a very useful tool that will let you find encrypted files and recover lost passwords on other computers without installing the software. The Portable Version can be installed on any removable device, i.e., a USB drive or a CD (USB recommended), and then used directly from this device on a target computer. Passware Kit Portable does not modify settings or files on a target computer (registry records, patched or unprotected files, etc.). The process is very easy. Simply prepare a portable version on a CD or USB disk then run on the target computer
