This research project explores the possiblities of intergrating GPU processing power with a network cluster in order to achieve better performance with respect to password cracking. First a literature study is performed on the field of passwords in general, GPGPU computing and distributed computing through means of middleware. With these building blocks, combined with current single machine GPU password crackers, a comparison is made in order to answer the question on how GPU enabled distributed password cracking can be performed.
