Rainbow Table Generation Update Possible?

Is it possible to append or update a rainbow table? For example, let's say I finish the configuration #0 example and have just alphabet characters as the charset. Is it possible to update it and add the numbers in instead of deleting and starting from scratch thus losing everything I've done?

Yes there is. In computers the case matters a lot more than you might imagine. Humans see, for example, "a" as the same letter as "A". That's great but a computer doesn't relate those two characters at all unless told to, they are two different numbers and as such are totally different.

Hope that helped, Moonlit

well, lm hashes, the subStandard windows hashes, convert everything to upper case before hashing. So, there isn't a need to create hashes with lowercase characters it would be a waste.

as for the original post, I don't think thats possible at least not with rainbow crack. Is it possible to write a program that allows that... sure... but it would take a lot of work to design a reduction function that allows for that.

Oh, I didn't know that, thanks for the info :)
