Cain & Abel is a program that recoverers lost passwords using the most powerful and tough decryption algorithms. It is capable to efficiently and quickly retrieve outlook and network passwords and to display passwords underneath asterisks .
The program doesn’t seek to impress through looks, which is why the user interface may seem a little unpolished. At a closer look, it sports an organized and easy to explore panel, while the additional menus encompass a wide range of tools. These include a Route Table utility, a Base64 and Cisco Password Decoder, a hash calculator, a RSA SecurID Token Calculator, to name a few.
Cain & Abel’s interface is divided into several sections, the first of which deals with decoding passwords (for Internet Explorer, Windows Mail, Dialup Passwords, as well as others). Other panels include a Sniffer (detects and retains passwords), a Trace Route Utility and a Wireless Scanner (identifies wireless networks and provides details on MAC addresses).
