       cupp3 - generate dictionaries for attacks from personal data


        cupp3 [options]


       CUPP(Common  User  Passwords  Profiler)  is  tool  to  generate  wordlist from common user
       profiler. The most common form of authentication is the combination of a  username  and  a
       password  or  passphrase.  If  both match values stored within a locally stored table, the
       user is authenticated for a connection. Password strength is a measure of  the  difficulty
       involved in guessing or breaking the password through cryptographic techniques or library-
       based automated testing of alternate values.

       A weak password can also be one that is easily guessed by someone profiling the user, such
       as  a birthday, nickname, address, name of a pet or relative,or a common word such as God,
       love, money or password. From a social engineering you can obtain information to use  with
       the CUPP, this way the tool can create a very effective dictionary for brute force attacks
       or dictionary attacks.

       That is why CUPP has born, and it can be used in situations like legal  penetration  tests
       or forensic crime investigations.

              purified databases of Phenoelit and CIRT which where merged and enhanced.

       Create wordlist in interactive mode:

        $ cupp3 -i

       Increases the wordlist file, for example the wordlist password.lst:

        $ cupp3 -w password.lst

       Download huge wordlist from FUNET repository:

        $ cupp3 -l


       CUPP has configuration file at /etc/cupp.cfg with instructions.
