brainflayer - A proof-of-concept cracker for cryptocurrency brainwallets and other low entropy key alogrithms

  •        53

Brainflayer is a Proof-of-Concept brainwallet cracking tool that uses libsecp256k1 for pubkey generation. It was originally released as part of my DEFCON talk about cracking brainwallets (slides, video, why). The name is a reference to Mind Flayers, a race of monsters from the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. They eat brains, psionically enslave people and look like lovecraftian horrors.

bitauth - Authenticate with web services utilizing the same strategy as Bitcoin.

  •    Javascript

BitAuth is a way to do secure, passwordless authentication using the cryptography in Bitcoin. Instead of using a shared secret, the client signs each request using a private key and the server checks to make sure the signature is valid and matches the public key.BitAuth uses the same technology in Bitcoin. A public private key pair is created using elliptic curve secp256k1. The public SIN (System identification number), like a bitcoin address, is the RIPEMD 160, SHA256 hash of the public key. See https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Identity_protocol_v1 for complete details.

Hshare

  •    C

The UTXO-based blockchain system (e.g. Bitcoin) and account-based blockchain system (e.g. Ethereum ) opened the door of a brand-new world for us. Despite facing some drawbacks along the way, the impressive success of Bitcoin and Ethereum has certainly proven the value of the blockchain technology and its massive potential in the future. Since 2015, there has been quite a few highly-promising distributed ledger systems which are not block-based blockchain technology turned up, such as DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph). With no doubt, a decentralized digital world is dawning and Bitcoin or Ethereum has the potential to become the fundamental currency in block-based blockchain system. IOTA or Byteball, on the other hand may fulfil a similar role in a system based upon DAG. Although all blockchain issued tokens can be traded on some exchange platform, they can only circulate within their own blockchain systems. We want to create a new decentralized platform, which will be the connecting point of the major blockchain systems, regardless the block-based or blockless-based blockchain system, hence allowing value and information circulate smoothly within different blockchain system. We call it “HyperCash” or Hcash in short. The Hcash is being developed by cryptography labs in one of the China’s most prestigious university as well as other famous universities in Australia. We will periodically update you with the progress on this over time, and we expected the first hardfork upgrade will happen soon at early Sept 2017. Thanks for your attention and stay tuned for the further update from Hcash dev team.

python-ecdsa - pure-python ECDSA signature/verification

  •    Python

This is an easy-to-use implementation of ECDSA cryptography (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm), implemented purely in Python, released under the MIT license. With this library, you can quickly create keypairs (signing key and verifying key), sign messages, and verify the signatures. The keys and signatures are very short, making them easy to handle and incorporate into other protocols. This library provides key generation, signing, and verifying, for five popular NIST "Suite B" GF(p) curves, with key lengths of 192, 224, 256, 384, and 521 bits. The "short names" for these curves, as known by the OpenSSL tool (openssl ecparam -list_curves), are: prime192v1, secp224r1, prime256v1, secp384r1, and secp521r1. It also includes the 256-bit curve used by Bitcoin, whose short name is secp256k1. No other curves are included, but it would not be too hard to add more.

bitid - Bitcoin Authentication Open Protocol

  •    

Pure Bitcoin sites and applications shouldn’t have to rely on artificial identification methods such as usernames and passwords. BitID is an open protocol allowing simple and secure authentication using public-key cryptography.Classical password authentication is an insecure process that could be solved with public key cryptography. The problem however is that it theoretically offloads a lot of complexity and responsibility on the user. Managing private keys securely is complex. However this complexity is already being addressed in the Bitcoin ecosystem. So doing public key authentication is practically a free lunch to bitcoiners.

crypto-whale-watching-app - Python Dash app that tracks whale activity in cryptocurrency markets.

  •    Python

Welcome! This is a Python-based Dash app meant to track whale activity in buy / sell walls on crypto-currency exchanges (presently just operational for GDAX, but more exchanges to come). This document aims to explain the purpose, functionality, and future of this project. Please do share this with your fellow coders / traders / crypto-aficionados, donate via the donation addresses included in the "Support Needed" section below, and contribute to the future of this project by calling out issues, requesting new features, and submitting pull requests to improve the app. If you want to use a hosted version of the app, check out this link here which has been graciously hosted by a member of the Ethereum community while we raise money via donations to migrate to AWS. If for any reason the page does not load properly, feel free to let us know via an issue, but more than likely it is because we are updating to the newest version of the codebase or performing maintenance.

BozoCrack - A silly & effective MD5 cracker in Ruby

  •    Ruby

BozoCrack is a depressingly effective MD5 password hash cracker with almost zero CPU/GPU load. Instead of rainbow tables, dictionaries, or brute force, BozoCrack simply finds the plaintext password. Specifically, it googles the MD5 hash and hopes the plaintext appears somewhere on the first page of results. It works way better than it ever should.

Bitcoin - Most popular Crypto Currency

  •    C++

Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

DecentralizedApplications - Decentralized Applications White Paper and Spec

  •    

See also the previous version of this document on Google Drive. A new model for building successful and massively scalable applications is emerging. Bitcoin led the way with its open-source, peer-to-peer nature, cryptographically-stored records (block chain), and limited number of tokens that power the use of its features. In the last year dozens of applications are adopting the Bitcoin model in order to succeed. Ethereum, Omni and the SAFE Network are just a few of those “decentralized applications” that use a variety of methods to operate. Some use their own block chain (Ethereum), some use existing blockchains and issue their own tokens (Omni Layer), and others operate at two layers above an existing block chain and issue their own tokens (SAFE Network).
