What everyone wanted to use cloud computing for 🙂 http://bit.ly/6u35nU

WPA Cracker is a cloud cracking service for penetration testers and network auditors who need to check the security of WPA-PSK protected wireless networks.

WPA-PSK networks are vulnerable to dictionary attacks, but running a respectable-sized dictionary over a WPA network handshake can take days or weeks. WPA Cracker gives you access to a 400CPU cluster that will run your network capture against a 135 million word dictionary created specifically for WPA passwords. While this job would take over 5 days on a contemporary dual-core PC, on our cluster it takes an average of 20 minutes, for only $17.

The founder “Moxie Marlinspike”, claims to be using a 400 node compute cluster. Perhaps if we used a 4000 node cluster, such as a say one rented from Amazon … ah the possibilities 🙂
