Passware Kit 2023 v4 is Now Available. New features and support of macOS 14 Sonoma.

Updated: Nov 20, 2023








What's new in Passware Kit 2023 v4:


  • GPU-accelerated password recovery and decryption of Western Digital drives

  • Decryption of Windows network credentials for standalone systems

  • Master password recovery for the latest Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird

  • GPU acceleration for NTLMv2 hashes

  • Optional recovery of PDF owner passwords

  • Support for macOS 14 Sonoma


Securing digital content through built-in hardware encryption in hard drives has become increasingly popular. This convenience, however, creates a unique challenge for forensic examiners.


Passware introduces Device Decryption Add-on — a specialized solution designed for decrypting Western Digital My Passport HDD and Macs equipped with Apple T2 Security Chips to address this. This tool is compatible with My Passport Series 2018-2022 disks with built-in 256-bit AES hardware encryption, which can unlock or decrypt them and recover original protection passwords.


The Device Decryption Add-on is integrated into Passware Kit Ultimate 2023 v4 and is available as an option for Passware Kit Forensic.


The new version of Passware Kit also features instant recovery of Wi-Fi passwords and extraction of network credentials from the standalone Windows “Users” and “Config” folders.


Passware Kit 2023 v4 now detects and analyzes Mozilla key4.db database files, which allow the recovery of the Mozilla Master password. As a result of the GPU-accelerated recovery, Passware Kit immediately extracts website and email passwords saved in the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird.


Password recovery for NTLMv2 hashes can now be accelerated on NVIDIA and AMD GPU. And finally, Passware Kit 2023 v4 fully supports the newly released macOS Sonoma.

The decryption of Windows network credentials for standalone systems.


Passware Kit 2023 v4 features instant recovery of Wi-Fi passwords, GPU-accelerated recovery of Windows user passwords, and subsequent instant extraction of network credentials from the standalone Windows “Users” and “Config” folders. These credentials include passwords for network connections and Internet Explorer 11 websites.


Wi-Fi passwords can be instantly recovered, so they are first checked for Windows users. If there is any match, the corresponding Windows credentials for these users are extracted immediately.


Master password recovery for the latest Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird.


Passware Kit now detects and analyzes key4.db database files from Mozilla version 58 and higher. This database file allows for the recovery of the Mozilla Master (also known as Primary) password and the immediate extraction of website passwords and email credentials saved in the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird. The master password recovery can be accelerated on GPU, reaching 400,000 passwords per second on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.


GPU acceleration for NTLMv2 hashes.


The latest version of Passware Kit accelerates password recovery for NTLMv2 hashes, which generally store network credentials on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. The recovery speed is now up to 1.3 bn passwords per second on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.


Optional recovery of PDF owner passwords.


Passware Kit can now be set for PDF files to recover user passwords only, skipping the recovery of owner passwords and thus reducing the overall number of tasks in batch mode. This option can be enabled and disabled at Tools|Options.


Support for macOS 14 Sonoma.


Passware Kit 2023 v4 fully supports the newly-released macOS 14 Sonoma, including APFS decryption and password recovery for Keychain files.
