Does anyone know how to make/use a rainbow table? i know there's a bunch of programs out there for "hash cracking", but none of the readmes/info-pages say anything other than how to use their programs. other sites only explain them in very general ways that dont give me enough data to implement a program to try to crack my own hash
my main questions:
how long should each hash chain be? why that number or why any number i chose?
how do i chose what a reduction function is? do i need new ones after every time data is hashed?
how do i search backwards for the key if the hashes are reduced (with one way algorithms) before being hashed again?
