@lynks I understand that, but we arent talking about defence mechanisms, we are talking about time tradeoffs between algorithms by removing all of the variables around attacks "like defence mechanisms".

@mgibsonbr Right but here we are talking about bruteforcing the plaintext on an input console with zero throttling. So wether it was hashed with MD5 or SHA1, the computation of the hash does not affect the bruteforcing correct?

@HamZaDzCyberDeV Does the computation of the hash really throttle the performance of bruteforcing? Or are there cracking methods coupled with specific hashing algorithms that drastically improve time?

@mgibsonbr I dont need textbook definitions. I need resources that do sprint tests using different methods of cracking to understand tradeoffs in time. Local context assuming zero throttling.

@mgibsonbr Speaking only to a local context where a user isnt throttled.

@Adnan Sure mabye not every single one. Broad categories, unique approaches. Surely one pattern doesnt vastly outpreform another under a nearly identical context with slight variation. Im just trying to understand a scope of time.

@Adnan I guess I'm trying to figure out the range of contexts and how they are different for each senario. Pointing to litterature is helpful as well.

@HamZaDzCyberDeV Okay, give me a few ideas to work with. I'm trying to get a better understanding of time.

On a 2.5 ghz processor (average consumer PC) how many guesses per second is reasonably possible? i.e. is 100 billion attempts for an average PC reasonable...?

This is brute forcing combinations of words correct? i.e. "lazy + turtle" , "lazy + snail" ... ? Would you consider 1000 guesses per second realistic or is type of attack preformed much faster?
