hashcat Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. hashcat-6.1.1.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Contributing

Contributions are welcome and encouraged, provided your code is of sufficient quality. Before submitting a pull request, please ensure your code adheres to the following requirements:

  1. Licensed under MIT license, or dedicated to the public domain (BSD, GPL, etc. code is incompatible)
  2. Adheres to gnu99 standard
  3. Compiles cleanly with no warnings when compiled with -W -Wall -std=gnu99
  4. Uses Allman-style code blocks & indentation
  5. Uses 2-spaces as the indentation or a tab if it's required (for example: Makefiles)
  6. Uses lower-case function and variable names
  7. Avoids the use of ! and uses positive conditionals wherever possible (e.g., if (foo == 0) instead of if (!foo), and if (foo) instead of if (foo != 0))
  8. Use code like array[index + 0] if you also need to do array[index + 1], to keep it aligned

You can use GNU Indent to help assist you with the style requirements:

indent -st -bad -bap -sc -bl -bli0 -ncdw -nce -cli0 -cbi0 -pcs -cs -npsl -bs -nbc -bls -blf -lp -i2 -ts2 -nut -l1024 -nbbo -fca -lc1024 -fc1

Your pull request should fully describe the functionality you are adding/removing or the problem you are solving. Regardless of whether your patch modifies one line or one thousand lines, you must describe what has prompted and/or motivated the change.

Solve only one problem in each pull request. If you're fixing a bug and adding a new feature, you need to make two separate pull requests. If you're fixing three bugs, you need to make three separate pull requests. If you're adding four new features, you need to make four separate pull requests. So on, and so forth.

If your patch fixes a bug, please be sure there is an issue open for the bug before submitting a pull request. If your patch aims to improve performance or optimize an algorithm, be sure to quantify your optimizations and document the trade-offs, and back up your claims with benchmarks and metrics.

In order to maintain the quality and integrity of the hashcat source tree, all pull requests must be reviewed and signed off by at least two board members before being merged. The project lead has the ultimate authority in deciding whether to accept or reject a pull request. Do not be discouraged if your pull request is rejected!

Happy Cracking!
