Peplum::John: Distributed John the Ripper
Hello all, I'd like to announce the addition of Peplum::John to the arsenal. Peplum is a project that enables users/developers to run code in a distributed, parallel fashion and combine multiple machines' resources, thus rendering time consuming tasks to be much, much quicker. We previously talked about Peplum::Nmap, this time though it's John the Ripper that got the treatment. The way this works is hashes are distributed across computer nodes that already have John installed and then attacked by all available machines until they are cracked. It's quite the party so give it a go and let us know. :)
Peplum: Free/Open-Source super-computing at home
Hello all, It's been very busy here at Ecsypno skunkworks these last few days when it comes to research and development into distributed computing systems. Armed with Cuboid, Qmap was built, which tackled the handling of nmap in a distributed environment, with great results. Afterwards, an iterative clean-up process led to a template of sorts, for scheduling most applications in such environments. With that, Peplum was born, which allows for OS applications, Ruby code and C/C++/Rust code (via Ruby extensions) to be distributed across machines and tackle the processing of neatly grouped objects. In essence, Peplum: Is a distributed computing...
Qmap: A F/OSS distributed network mapper/security scanner.
Hello all, I'd like to announce the beginning of a new F/OSS project, called Qmap. Qmap is a distributed network mapper/security scanner based on nmap, with backing from Cuboid for its distributed features. The way Qmap currently works is as follows: A ping scan is performed on the given IP range(s). Live hosts are identified. Hosts are split into groups. Different Grid Instances scan each group in parallel. By being supported by Cuboid, Qmap boasts RPC and REST APIs, so integration is dead simple. As you can see, Ecsypno has started to delve into network security waters as well, eventually...
