Cloud computing is a great resource for applications that require computing capacity for a short time but do not need investing in fixed capital for long term. As a result, it can be used for lot of attacks such as cracking passwords, keys or other forms of brute force attacks that are computationally expensive but highly parallelizable. This paper will focus on the currently available tools and techniques, discuss their practical aspects and outline experimental analysis to verify their feasibility and real world performance.
