libbadger is an alternative to existing decentralized authentication systems which require regular direct communication between client and authority. Badger allows clients to authenticate with servers easily and securely in a browserless environment because there is no necessity to tunnel the client to an authority for the purposes of its own authentication. Using Badger, clients only need to communicate with an authority once in their lifetimes.
Wisecracker is a high performance distributed cryptanalysis framework that leverages GPUs and multiple CPUs. It allows security researchers to write their own cryptanalysis tools that can distribute brute-force cryptanalysis work across multiple systems with multiple multi-core processors and GPUs. Security researchers can also use the sample tools provided out-of-the-box. The differentiating aspect of Wisecracker is that it uses OpenCL and MPI together to distribute the work across multiple systems, each having multiple CPUs and/or GPUs.
