ZIP Key

CNET Editors' review

If you use password-protected ZIP files to archive your work, you might want to download something like ZIP Key. The utility uses a number of techniques to recover your ZIP password. Finding a password may take a long time, and you can set the program so ZIP Key works in the background, without slowing your system. You also can stop recovery and resume it from that point later. ZIP Key performed well in our tests, finding the word Queen in less than a second. The Dictionary method checks 800,000 words per second, according to the counter. If you have an unencrypted version of one of the files in an archive, you can try the Known Plaintext attack. You can speed up Brute Force attacks by specifying possible characters. Xieve optimization also boosts this type of attack dramatically by skipping nonsense combinations of characters (finding the password "flagged" in 11 seconds). The manual doesn't explain many of the program capabilities, however. ZIP Key recovers passwords, especially if you vaguely remember them, which ZIP users may find invaluable in a pinch.
