Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  Bleze  12062015 Hello everyone. I'm posting here because i've searched both in the wiki and in the forum, but i couldn't find a solution. Here's my problem: I'm trying to find out a sha256 hash, knowing that the original string is 64characters long, and that contain only a "?dabcdef" (numbers 09, and 'a' to 'f' letters) charset. I've created, with crunch, a wordlist composed by 8characters words (considering only with max. 2 consecutive characters), and I'd like to create a chain with 8 of this words at time, creating in this way a 64characters word. Knowing this, i run on my terminal: $ hashcat m 1400 a 8 1 pwmin=64 pwmax=64 ?dabcdef path_to_wordlist/my_wordlist.lst path_to_hashes/my_hashes.txt But everytime it gives me the error: "Value of pwmax (64) must be smaller or equal to 32". I don't know what's the cause for the problem. I'm a newbie in this field, and probably i'm missing something due to my (very) low knowledge. I would really appreciate any kind of help. Edit: I also tried to run command with "elemcntmin=8" and "elemcntmax=8", but after 2 seconds it stop. RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  undeath  12062015 the cause for this problem is that your password candidates may only be up to 32 bytes long. RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  Bleze  12062015 So this means that i have no possibilities to find out a 64characters password? RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  undeath  12062015 not with hashcat, correct. RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  Bleze  12062015 Ok....so, which tool i can use in my case? Edit: could be princeprocessor piped to JtR a good solution to my problem? RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  rico  12072015 I think OP is missing a slightly larger problem: the keyspace is HUGE!!! Now I know he's reduced it a tiny bit by omitting more than 2 consecutive characters in candidates but it's still going to be close as makes no difference to 16^64 (1.1579 X 10^77) And not even a GPU in sight... RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  Bleze  12072015 So, what do you suggest? I should give up and convince me that it's impossible? I know that normal people would think that, but I don't consider myself a normal person so I'd rather check if there are any other possibilities.

RE: Value of pwmax must be smaller or equal to 32  Bleze  12072015 Ops, I didn't mean that I'm not normal because I have special abilities or something...I meant I'm not normal because I'm not ok with my mind. But, just to know, which math field do I need to know? As an engineering student I (think I) have some practice with math, and I can learn other stuff if necessary. I'm open to any kind of suggestion.
