Cain & Abel is a password recovery tool for Microsoft Operating Systems. It allows easy recovery of various kind of passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using Dictionary, Brute-Force and Cryptanalysis attacks, recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, recovering wireless network keys, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocols. The program does not exploit any software vulnerabilities or bugs that could not be fixed with little effort. It covers some security aspects/weakness present in protocol’s standards, authentication methods and caching mechanisms; its main purpose is the simplified recovery of passwords and credentials from various sources, however it also ships some “non standard" utilities for Microsoft Windows users.
Cain & Abel has been developed in the hope that it will be useful for network administrators, teachers, security consultants/professionals, forensic staff, security software vendors, professional penetration tester and everyone else that plans to use it for ethical reasons. The author will not help or support any illegal activity done with this program. Be warned that there is the possibility that you will cause damages and/or loss of data using this software and that in no events shall the author be liable for such damages or loss of data. Please carefully read the License Agreement included in the program before using it.
The latest version is faster and contains a lot of new features like APR (Arp Poison Routing) which enables sniffing on switched LANs and Man-in-the-Middle attacks. The sniffer in this version can also analyze encrypted protocols such as SSH-1 and HTTPS, and contains filters to capture credentials from a wide range of authentication mechanisms. The new version also ships routing protocols authentication monitors and routes extractors, dictionary and brute-force crackers for all common hashing algorithms and for several specific authentications, password/hash calculators, cryptanalysis attacks, password decoders and some not so common utilities related to network and system security.
Cain & Abel是從oxid.it這個網站發佈的軟體。原文音譯是「該隱與亞伯」，是聖經裡亞當和夏娃兒子的名字。不過，聖經故事跟這個軟體所作的事顯然沒什麼關係…
從網站上的簡介可以得知，Cain & Abel是針對微軟作業系統而設計的密碼竊取軟體〈他們宣稱是密碼「復原」軟體〉。Cain & Abel要怎麼使用呢？youtube上有很完整的影片教學：
限於篇幅，這裡並不會細細說明軟體的操作細節，運作原理才是本文的重點。Cain & Abel鑽的是ARP這個協定的漏洞，透過一種叫做「ARP Spoofing」的技巧，欺騙特定電腦，假冒自己成中間人。
