Crafting tailored wordlists with Wordsmith

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Standard wordlists such as Uniq and Rockyou are great when used with a variety of hashcat rules and big hash sets. But what about the hashes that you aren't able to crack? And what about smaller hash sets from smaller targets?

Queue Wordsmith, a tool that creates wordlists that are tailored to the target. Based on the target’s U.S. State, Wordsmith creates geo-location based wordlists that contains the names of cities, landmarks, roads, sports teams, zip codes, area codes, popular names and more. Generated wordlists can be used by themselves or as a supplement to other wordlists for brute force attacks or hash cracking.
