In This paper the current security of various password hashing schemes that are in use today will be investigated through practical proof of concept – GPU based, password hash dump cracking using the power of cloud computing. The focus of this paper is to show the possible use of cloud computing in cracking hash dumps and the way to countermeasures them by using secure hashing algorithm and using complex passwords.
