    John the Ripper Pro is available for a number of operating systems. This web page describes the Mac OS X revision of John the Ripper Pro.
    On Mac OS X, the features currently specific to Pro versions are:
    • Pre-built and well-tested native package (dmg), which may be installed the usual way - no need to compile
    • Universal binary that will run on both Intel and PowerPC Macs, making use of SSE2 and AltiVec acceleration, respectively
      A non-AltiVec version is also included for users of older PowerPC-based Macs
    • A large multilingual wordlist optimized specifically for use with John the Ripper (4,106,923 entries, 43 MB uncompressed) is included in the package, and John the Ripper is pre-configured for its use
    • The included documentation is revised to be specific for the given package on Mac OS X rather than generic, making it easier to understand
    On Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and newer, you additionally get:
    • Native support for 64-bit capable Intel CPUs within the Universal binary, which makes use of 64-bit mode extended SSE2 for even better performance
    • Official support for Windows NTLM (MD4-based) and Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.6 salted SHA-1 hashes, in addition to all hash types supported by the free version (please see below for a full list)
    • XPWDUMP tool, which dumps password hashes from Mac OS X systems for subsequent auditing/cracking
    • As a bonus, the full source code is also provided
