NetCrack is cluster software developed to distribute a hashing algorithm's cracking process work using a brute force attack. Currently, it only supports the two most commonly used hashing algorithms: MD5 and SHA-1. Support is included for MySQL, safe mode, and others. It works like a client/server application, where the server is unique for each cluster network and its job is to distribute the cracking process work, coordinate the nodes, and prevent connections and data integrity errors.
PyroScope is a collection of tools for the BitTorrent protocol and especially the rTorrent client. "pyrocore" is the component providing command line tools for automation of common tasks, like metafile creation, and controlling rTorrent via its XML-RPC interface. It also offers a documented API, with which these tools are implemented.
