Ok guys and gals,
Can someone tell me what the brain function is usefull for. Is it for shared cracking? I have a I7 gamming laptop with 1060 max q card and also a workstation with I7 1080 card can they be used together to speed up my wee cracking sessions. If so how do I go about it please.


Thanks for any replies in advance.

Cheers Kev

Hashcat brain simply checks if the given password candidate has been calculated for the given hash:salt (and skips if it has already done)
Thus you can run any wordlist/rules combinations and not worry about possible duplicates (applicable to single or shared workers)
But it used for very slow hashes (such as bcrypt) because of possible bottlenecks in network performance

Hello again, So if I run 2xpc's do I have to run both at the same time with the same word list. Not quite getting this?

Cheers Kev
