Forum Thread: Using a remote GPU to crack WPA/passwords


I would like to know is this is possible to use my GPU from my gaming computer for cracking WPA/passwords?

I have a little ESXi that doesn't support I/O passthrough, so there is no way I can plug a GPU on this one. Of course my VM kali linux is on this ESXi.

I have search for a long time and I didn't find a way for doing that but I was just wondering, since bot net can do that all over internet, why couldn't I in my network?

If that's possible, maybe I could use all the "ressources" available in my local network (laptop, ESXi, gaming computer) at the same time for cracking passwords/WPA?

Thanks for reading me, sorry for my English, it is not my native langage!

You dont have kali on your gaming computer??
Use portable kali usb maybe if you dont wanna install??

Thanks for the answers but I would like to use the GPU remotely.

What I would like is just to turn on my gaming computer, and, remotely use my graphic card to crack passwords from my kali linux VM (which is in my ESXi).

But I don't think this is doable I guess.

I was just wondering, how botnet for example, could compute resources in one big cracking process (I don't know if that make sense! :D)

Thank you guys :)

Ok, thank you so much guys
