RainbowCrack is a general propose implementation of Philippe Oechslin's faster time-memory trade-off technique.
 In short, the RainbowCrack tool is a password cracker. A traditional brute force cracker try all possible 
plaintexts one by one in cracking time. It is time consuming to break complex password in this way. The idea of 
time-memory trade-off is to do all cracking time computation in advance and store the result in files so called 
"rainbow table". It does take a long time to precompute the tables. But once the one time precomputation is 
finished, a time-memory trade-off cracker can be hundreds of times faster than a brute force cracker, with the 
help of precomputed tables.
