The subject of the project is the acquisition and development of the technology necessary to create a distributed, scalable, high-performance system for breaking cryptographic security.
The main goal of the project is to increase the detection capabilities of law enforcement agencies, equipping them with technical capabilities adequate to the threat, which will facilitate prosecution of cybercrime, organized crime and cyberterrorism.
The implementation of the project results is aimed at acquiring the priority operational capacity of security services, supporting the detection process and combating crime (including organized crime and counteracting terrorism) referred to in the National Program Research.
It is expected that the designed system will allow breaking passwords based, among others, on o MD4, MD5, SHA1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, SHA-3 (Keccak), NetNTLMv1, NetNTLMv1 + ESS, NetNTLMv2, sha256crypt, sha512crypt, as well as an attempt to break the security of m. in, MS Office 2007, 2010, 2013, PDF, KeePass, 7-zip, Rar and commonly used encryption applications (Truecrypt, Veracrypt, Bitlocker).
The specific objectives of the project are:
— development of efficient distributed processing algorithms,
— development of efficient data processing methods using the processor and graphics cards,
— development of a server application prototype,
— development of a prototype of a client application,
— development of a prototype of an application for obtaining data from files,
— designing the overall structure of the IT system.
The project is implemented by a consortium consisting of:
— AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow – consortium leader,
— Redge Technologies (formerly known as Atende Software),
— Warsaw University of Technology – Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology
— Academy of War Arts in Warsaw.
Project start date: 2018-12-10
