Description Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-07 11:29:45 UTC
Right off the bat, this code isn't very useful.  The PBKDF2 function makes
4096 SHA-1 passes for each passphrase, which takes quite a bit of time.  On
my Pentium II development system, I'm getting ~4 passphrases/second.
The SHA-1 code I'm using has been optimized to the best of my ability (which
isn't saying that much), but I doubt if it would be possible to optimize it
such that the tool experiences an exponential performance increase.

However, if you are auditing WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK networks, you can use
this tool to identify weak passphrases that were used to generate the
PMK.  Supply a libpcap capture file that includes the 4-way handshake, a
dictionary file of passphrases to guess with, and the SSID for the

Hello, everyone.

It seems that at least one ebuild related to this bug exists in the Sunrise overlay at the moment. However, I have to regretfully announce that after a long inactivity period the Sunrise project has been discontinued and the related overlay will be eventually removed. For this reason, I'd like to ask you to reevaluate the ebuilds and consider moving them. If you'd like to maintain a package from Sunrise in Gentoo, please take a look at our Proxy Maintainers [1] project.

Please make sure to take ebuilds from the unreviewed developer Sunrise repository [2] rather than the -reviewed one, since the latter has not been updated for over a year. While at it, please note that:

1. Adding a package to Gentoo requires declaring yourself as an active maintainer for it. All bugs regarding the package will be assigned to you, and you will be expected to maintain it.

2. Some packages may not be suitable for addition anymore. While there's no strong rules that would prevent you from adding a package, it may be a bad idea to add old-unmaintained packages that will shortly result in a large number of bugs reported with no solution. If that is the case, please close the bug as RESOLVED/OBSOLETE to make it easier to find packages worth adding.

3. Some of the bugs were already closed as WONTFIX/OBSOLETE/... while the relevant ebuild was kept in Sunrise. If you disagree with the original decision, you still can add the ebuild via proxy-maint.

4. Pleaes note that many of the Sunrise ebuilds are old and may be buggy. If you decide to move them, please make sure to update/clean them up. The proxy-maint team will also review your ebuilds, therefore making sure they land in Gentoo in good quality.

Once again, thank you for your contribution. We hope that you will still want to contribute to Gentoo, through proxy-maint or otherwise.
