Elcomsoft tools gain support for NVIDIA Ada Lovelace boards, nearly double password recovery speeds

Elcomsoft Advanced Office Password Recovery 7.20, Wireless Security Auditor 7.50, and Advanced PDF Password Recovery 5.20 gain support for NVIDIA’s latest-generation GeForce RTX 40 boards. The resulting performance increase nearly doubles the password recovery speeds of respective formats.

We updated three password recovery tools, adding support for the latest generation of NVIDIA RTX boards based on the Ada Lovelace architecture. Depending on execution environment, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 boards series video cards deliver 70 to 90 per cent more performance to password recovery attacks compared to the previous generation. The newest generation of NVIDIA boards delivers higher performance and reduced power consumption, which makes them a perfect match for GPU-intensive tasks such as password recovery jobs.

Our password recovery tools make use of the massively parallel GPU units to offload computationally intensive parts of the attack onto the video card. In this release, the tool gained support for the latest generation of NVIDIA RTX 4000-series boards, nearly halving the time required to carry out an attack.

We measured the performance of an NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti board and compared it to the speed of an NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti.

Elcomsoft Advanced Office Password Recovery is a GPU-accelerated, single-PC tool for removing password protection and accessing information in office documents in multiple formats. Advanced Office Password Recovery can attack and recover passwords for Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, Project, Money, PowerPoint, Visio, Publisher, and OneNote. The tool provides instant access to many types of password-protected documents.

Advanced PDF Password Recovery enables GPU-assisted attacks on plain-text PDF encryption passwords. In addition, the tool can instantly unlock PDF restrictions and enable editing, printing and copying of locked PDF files.

Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor enables network administrators to audit security of the company's wireless networks by attempting an attack on Wi-Fi passwords. The attacks are hardware accelerated, utilizing high-performance GPU units available in today’s video cards to achieve the maximum possible recovery speeds.
