RE: Blowfish cracker

Does your boss want a practical demonstration of a technology that he
wants implemented somewhere? Instead of setting up a machine to run ad
infinitum, you could provide a better demonstration by running through
the simple mathematical principles behind encryption techniques, and the
amount of processing power it takes to crack these. This may make more
of an impact than a practical demonstration.

Subject: Blowfish cracker

I got tasked with trying to crack a couple of blowfish encrypted
passwords and I now need a cracker. I know that this is pretty
impossible but my boss wants a demonstration on how long it would take
to crack this. Could someone suggest a good cracker?
