We can use aircrack-ng for cracking .ivs files.

But, are there any softwares that support multi-threading, SMP?


You can use the open-source software Hashcat. See its GitHub repository. It's open-source, runs on Windows and Linux. It supports GPUs (in the oclHashcat variant) and multiple cores. If you want to play around with it, you can use the Kali Linux live CD which has Hashcat preinstalled.

  • Does Hashcat really support GPUs? Its readme prominently says "CPU-based".
