Abstract

We propose an efficient attack to recover the passwords, used to authenticate the peer by EAP-MD5, in the IEEE 802.1X network. First, we recover the length of the used password through a method called length recovery attack by on-line queries. Second, we crack the known length password using a rainbow table pre-computed with a fixed challenge, which can be done efficiently with great probability through off-line computations. This kind of attack can also be implemented successfully even if the underlying hash function MD5 is replaced with SHA-1 or even SHA-512.
