1. ## 10 Character pass

Hi, I'm trying to find a 10 character password list with all the possible number and letter (no special characters) combinations to bruteforce a wpa handshake.

Does anyone know where i can get one or maybe help me constructing it

one more stupid question. How many possible combinations would there be?

thanks

2. The search feature covers this very topic.

3. Do you only want 10 character passwords or do you want all passwords up to and including 10 characters? (e.g. 1 letter passwords, 2 letter passwords ... 9 letter passwords, 10 letter passwords). Doesn't really matter actually, because creating either list is infeasible.

Assuming the smaller of the two lists containing only 10 character passwords using a-z, A-Z, 0-9, we have 62 to the power of 10 entries (839299365868340224). Assuming an ASCII character set, at 11 bytes for each password (ten bytes for the password and one for the end of line character) you would need 9,232,293,024,551,742,464 bytes or 8,598,242,909.23 gigabytes of storage to store the list.

Hopefully the math convinces you that trying to create a complete 10 character password list is a bad idea.

Not to mention it would be easier to just put the password in the dictionary.

It always amazes me that people can't work out the math for themselves. This isn't rocket science.

6. I calculated this once before (it's been a while), but an 8 character password for ONE single SSID would be something on the order of 5 petabyes.

Honk! Honk! Honk!

That's the sound of the tractor trailer backing up into your driveway to deliver the 5PB worth of drives...

I was thinking about storing it on spanned floppies, so that I can take it offline when need be.

I agree, the math isn't that difficult, you just need to know the formula to get the number of possible entries ('number of possible characters' to the power of 'length of password' for anyone that doesn't know). Most people I have talked to about this don't seem to know that though. I included this formula in a recent risk assessment relating to password controls, and no one who read it had seen it before (a lot of non IT people read it however, which may partially explain things). In addition, I can recall someone posting a link here on the forums which featured some 'expert' getting this wrong.

I'd prefer to just send it as an email attachment.

Something that big might need my usb thumb drive raid array.
