Welcome to Krypton! The first level is easy. The following string encodes the password using Base64:
Use this password to log in to krypton.labs.overthewire.org with username krypton1 using SSH. You can the files for other levels in /krypton/
Simple python program to convert Base64 to ascii.
#!/bin/python import binascii s = "S1JZUFRPTklTR1JFQVQ=" print (binascii.a2b_base64(s))
Running the program will result in the following output and using this password to login to level1 with ssh.
python krypton1.py KRYPTONISGREAT ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Let do this in bash as well since we will be working in the terminal a lot in these challenges.
#!/bin/bash s="S1JZUFRPTklTR1JFQVQ=" echo $s | base64 --decode echo
