Brute-force: In brute-force attack an attacker trying many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing correctly. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases until the correct one is found. Choose this method When you think or have an idea about the password is small.
Mask: It is a modified form of Brute-force attack, this method reduces the password candidate keyspace to a more efficient one. Try your luck with this method when you cloud know what will be the password for example when you download a movie from a website i.e mymovie.com. in most cases, the password will be the domain name, or something related to the website i.e the owner name, email e.tc.
Dictionary: A dictionary attack is based on trying all the strings in a pre-arranged listing, typically derived from a list of words such as in a dictionary (hence the phrase dictionary attack). In contrast to a brute force attack, where a large proportion of the key space is searched systematically. Use Dictionary attack when you don’t have any idea about the password.
