    Default running crunch on a cluster

    i'm building a cluster, a server and 4 nodes, to have as much processing power as i can.

    i was wondering if using crunch to brute force a wpa key, on a cluster, would be a good idea or if it would even work?

    thanks in advance

    it'd still largely depend on the key space and length of the password to determine whether it's feasible.

    Bruteforcing anything will eventually work. The problem is, will your equipment hold out that long, will the attacking system(s) hold out that long, will you live that long. There are probably a few others but those should be the main ones.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
