CloudCracker is a password cracking service aimed at penetration testers and auditors to check the security of the Protected Wireless Networks. It even provides services to help you crack password hashes or validate if your document encryption is strong enough. The CloudCracker API allows developers to integrate the functionality of the service into their own applications. Methods include returning dictionary options for an endpoint, submitting a cracking job, submitting payments for a job and more. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
If it's your own system, it's okay, right? If you have been following APIs for a while, you know at the back of your mind that there must be an API to do almost anything in today’s world of interconnected systems. Once in a while though we do get hit by APIs that do something out of the normal. How about a cloud-powered API that tests your network vulnerability? Well, Thoughtcrime Labs, the developers behind CloudCracker have released their CloudCracker API to help you do just that.
