i know its possible using tools like SAMINSIDE and LOPHTCRACK to crack
passwords on standalone win2k and xp computers,

Is it possible to crack the passwords in the Active Directory using
such tools ?

if I have a copy of a DC and the file NTDS.DIT can I crack the
passwords ?

I am trying it on my testlab at home .

Re: Cracking AD passwords on a domain controller

There are two methods of encrypting passwords in AD, one is reversible,
which is fairly easy to break and get the password back from AD, the
other is hash-based and could probably be found with brute-force
cracking, but will take a lot of time at least. wrote:
