Hi there, 


Is there any program that can break weak encryption?


For example, the WebGoat lesson "Weak Authentication" uses weak
encryption for a authentication cookie (see below). I wonder if there is
any program that would take these input, guess the encryption algorithm,
and show the encrypted value for some additional given input. This is
not just a brute-force attack, the program would try to figure out
encryption algorithm. I do not know if anyone has a link to such sites
or program.
