What is CUPP, exactly?

CUPP(common user passwords profiler) is powerful tool that creates a wordlist, specifically for a person. It is cross platform and written in Python. It asks you questions about the target (name, wife’s name, pet’s name, phone number…) and then creates a password based on the keywords you entered.

But, how exactly does CUPP work?

Humans, no matter how much we think we’re unique, show the same patterns when it comes to passwords. We usually pick passwords that are easy to remember, so we include personal things into our passwords. For example, someone could easily remember a password that contains his birthday and the name of his PET. If they have a PET named tommy and who was born on 05/07/1988, they might have password like “tommy05071988”.

CUPP uses these “algorithms,” which are hardwired in humans and exploits them, to generate a very effective wordlist.
