Originální abstrakt

One of the major challenges in digital forensics today is data encryption. Due to the leaked information about unlawful sniffing, many users decided to protect their data by encryption. In case of criminal activities, forensic experts are challenged how to decipher suspects' data that are subject to investigation. A common method how to overcome password-based pro- tection is a brute force password recovery using GPU-accelerated hardware. This approach seems to be expensive. This paper presents an alternative approach using task distribution based on BOINC platform. The cost, time, and energy efficiency of this approach is discussed and compared to the GPU-based solution.
