Welcome to hashkill home page.


Hashkill is an open-source password recovery tool. Its features are:

  • Multi-threaded so that it can benefit from multi-core/multi-CPU systems
  • SSE2/AVX/XOP/AES-NI-accelerated algorithms to achieve high speeds on modern x86 CPUs
  • Very powerful rule engine plus optimized bruteforce/markov codepaths for fast algos.
  • 50 plugins for different types of passwords (ranging from simple hashes like MD5 and SHA1 to WPA, passworded RAR files, MS Office documents and LUKS encrypted partitions)
  • Supports session save/restore. Sessions are auto-saved each 3 seconds. Password cracking can resume after the last checkpoint in case the program is stopped/killed/system crashes/power down/etc.
  • Multi-hash support
  • Very fast GPU support on both Nvidia and AMD. GCN and Kepler architecture supported.
  • Multi-GPU support (even AMD+NVidia systems).
  • Session save/restore, markov/rule/bruteforce also on GPUs


Current version is 0.3.1. You may download it here.
