For a long time, threat of web-application authentication break remained a problem not only for users but also for business. This threat still exists, since broken authentication provides a blackhat with full access to accounts of users and business data. This article analyzes software tools for breaking authentication as well as it defines time required for breaking-in depending on different conditions. Based on the results of the analysis, the fastest tool was determined. In order to complete this analysis and determine the fastest tool, own web-application was created.
