PHDays Hashrunner challenge 2015
#1
Hello, everyone!

We are glad to announce, that online hash cracking challenge "Hash Runner" will come back this year. It is going to take place week before international security conference "Positive Hack Days V" (http://www.phdays.com/program/contests/#16299).

Challenge will start on May, 15, 19:00 UTC+3 (Start date link) and will last for 3 days until: May, 18, 19:00 UTC+3 (End date link).

Any Internet user can participate: teams/individuals can register on web site http://hashrunner.phdays.com (site will be up some days before contest, exact date will be announced later).

Several thousand hashes of different types will be available. There will be both some well-known hash types, like MD4, MD5, SHA-1, combined with not so common GOST-34.11-2012, Lotus 8, PHC finalists and other. Passwords and rules used to generate hashes are categorized into number of groups to reflect their complexity. Each group has its own modifier formula and ratio which will significantly influence final hash cost. Following previous year ideas we also prepared some new challenging tasks, that we hope will spice things up.

Rules/Terms

- The cost of hashes can be changed before the challenge;
- File containing the hashes and the file format required to submit recovered passwords will be available in the registered user area at http://hashrunner.phdays.com;
- You can upload the results of your work multiple times during the challenge;
- Size of participating teams is not limited;
- You can use any hardware you want as long as it's legit;
- Teams attacking/DoS'ing the challenge site or other teams will be disqualified;
- Short technical write-up describing the software, hardware and wetware resources used during the challenge is required to get the prizes in case you win;
- Up to date scoreboard listing will be available online during the timeframe of the challenge;
- You can't participate in multiple teams simultaneously;

Prizes will be provided by the PHDays organizers, the Positive Technologies company, and the forum sponsors. Prizes for first three places:
