Are there any scientific papers or publications on GPU password cracking?

I'm guessing this question will be closed as off-topic as list questions are not very good for SE. That said, I think your question has some potential. For example, you could ask about limitations/weaknesses of GPU password cracking, designing a password verification system which resists massively parallel computation, etc. Also, consider posting on security.SE as these sorts of questions might be more on topic there (depending on the actual question). –  mikeazo May 10 '12 at 14:37
Also, is a google scholar search not sufficient? –  mikeazo May 10 '12 at 14:43
Closed for the reasons @mikeazo states - "please list" questions are quite hard to maintain and we've generally found they don't work. Also, as stated, somebody could simply answer "yes"... - however, if there is a specific problem you're looking at understanding, that would make a valid question. Feel free to edit/flag for re-opening if there is a specific problem you're looking to understand. –  Ninefingers May 10 '12 at 14:53
@Ninefingers It's not "please list". It's "are there any": a true/false answer. Either there are or there are not. For example, "Has anyone ever found two messages that collide in SHA1"; i'm not asking for a comprehensive list of all messages - i'm asking if it has ever happened. –  Ian Boyd May 12 '12 at 19:19
@Ninefingers i saw the title, and wondered what the answer was - only to find the question closed. The question is clear, and it is useful. You closed it, so you win; i just disagree. –  Ian Boyd May 12 '12 at 19:58
