Cisco Type 7 Password Decrypt


Tool to Decrypt Cisco Type 7 passwords.

Service password encryption uses weak encryption and can easily be cracked. Cisco says that this encryption should be used for a situation where someone is looking over your shoulder and you type “show run” or another command that displays passwords. Service password encryption would prevent that person seeing the passwords in clear text.

It is better to use secret passwords with local authentication as the secret passwords are a lot harder to crack.

To configure an enable password, do the following:

Router>
Router>enable
Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#enable password cisco

To enable password encryption, do the following:
Router>
Router>enable
Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#service password-encryption

Displaying the running config will show the following:
Router(config)#do sh run | i enable
enable password 7 060506324F41

The number ‘7’ indicates that the password has been encrypted. The number that follows (060506324F41) is the encrypted version of the password.

Use this tool to decrypt type 7 encrypted passwords – it’s really easy to crack these passwords:

For example:

username test password 7 0822455D0A16

should be entered as 0822455D0A16

Only use this tool for legitimate training purposes.
