|Summary||0003610: FeatherDuster - An automated, modular cryptanalysis tool; i.e., a Weapon of Math Destruction|
FeatherDuster is a tool designed for automating and simplifying cryptanalysis work. It is capable of analyzing encrypted data from a black box perspective and describing weaknesses suggested by statistical properties of the data being analyzed. It is capable of suggesting which of its available modules apply to the data being analyzed, and even has an autopwn command to automatically run relevant modules.
Its core, called Cryptanalib, is a Python module containing a number of useful functions for cryptanalysts who have some knowledge about cryptanalysis, reducing the coding work in exploiting common crypto flaws such as secret-suffix ECB chosen plaintext attacks from hours to minutes, as well as reducing the necessary level of expertise needed to write crypto attack tools.
It's worth noting that to date, no cryptographic exploitation tools exist in Kali except for PadBuster, which is a single-purpose tool.
Official repo is at https://github.com/nccgroup/featherduster
Also, there's an autopwn mode, so if you don't know what you're doing, it very well might break encrypted data for you when you have no idea how to do it yourself.
Any updates on this?
As requested by muts:
Required python modules:
FeatherDuster now has an official release version of 0.2.
Having numbered releases was the last item requested by muts.
Please let me know if any further items must be addressed before FeatherDuster can be included in Kali.
To help speed up the process of evaluating the tool, please make sure to include the following information (the more information you include, the more beneficial it will for us):
@kali-team, please could this be packaged up.
