I have a large list of plaintext passwords stored in a file
pwds.txt and would like to obtain the hashed version of these passwords under various different hash algorithms.
I want one file for each hash algorithm.
As a minimum I would like to obtain hashes under
SHA256, (with and without salts) and
Is there a simple way of obtaining this, without too much scripting?
I thought about leveraging some of the existing password cracking tools, like
john, but unfortunately (to the best of my knowledge) they all start with the assumption that you already have a list of hashed passwords and that you now want to crack them.
Basically, I want the opposite!
I have the plaintext passwords, and want to create the hashed passwords.
I have been unable to come up with a clever combination of command line options (for these two programs) that trick them to output a list of hashes from plaintexts.
I have already created a short PHP-script that achieves this for smaller files, but it runs out of memory for the size of password file I need it for.
