chapcrack – A tool for parsing and decrypting MS-CHAPv2 network handshakes.

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


chapcrack is a tool for parsing and decrypting MS-CHAPv2 network handshakes, it was announced recently at Defcon as we read over here – Marlinspike demos MS-CHAPv2 crack.

The process is as follows:

  1. Obtain a packet capture with an MS-CHAPv2 network handshake in it (PPTP VPN or WPA2 Enterprise handshake, for instance).
  2. Use chapcrack to parse relevant credentials from the handshake (chapcrack parse -i path/to/capture.cap).
  3. Submit the CloudCracker token to www.cloudcracker.com
  4. Get your results, and decrypt the packet capture (chapcrack decrypt -i path/to/capture.cap -o output.cap -n )

If you are interested in a much more in-depth, technical explanation – you can read more here:

Using this attack they have a 100% success rate of cracking DES hashes within 23~ hours.
