Default Re: CUDA hacks WPA2 wifi

Nice article. I wonder how many other algorithms they already have working on CUDA to speed up decryption times. It is definitely some interesting stuff as it adds such a leap in processing power it's unreal.

I have tested their password recovery program and I can tell you that 1 8800gtx is about equal to 25 E6600 dual core machines. What I think a lot of people don't take into consideration is leverage this gives someone for a small network of pcs to equal such a huge amount of processing power. With just a few friends we could easily have the power of 200 dual core pcs at our disposal. It would take a multi million dollar supercomputer to crunch the same data a handful of gaming rigs could do.
