This 120-minute online workshop talks about how passwords are stored on a system and then how they can be cracked. This workshop will first show how to create a password hash on a Kali Linux machine and then explore when the machine stores these hashed passwords. Then the workshop will explore three different methods of password cracking, brute force, using a dictionary, and rainbow tables.
The following Labs (from CYBER.ORG's Cybersecurity course) are covered in this workshop:
- Passwords Lab
- Brute Force Lab
- Dictionary Lab
- Rainbow Tables Lab
This workshop will be led by subject matter experts from the CYBER.ORG. A Zoom link will be emailed before the webinar begins.
Participants will receive access to online curriculum materials as well as a temporary log-in to the U.S. Cyber Range. Due to grant funding restrictions, this workshop is only open to K-12 educators in the U.S.
Pre-requisites: If you do not already have a U.S. Cyber Range account, please plan to attend a 30-minute "set-up" session on either October 1st at 8 pm Central or sometime between 11 am and 2 pm Central on October 2nd.
