In my office, we use ANIXIS Password Policy Enforcer to force people to
specific password requirement.  It's a relatively inexpensive program
and works quite well.  They just came out with the new version, so
hopefully I will get a chance to install it soon.


As far as post audit - I used to use L0pht Crack - but haven't tried it
against active directory.

Subject: [unisog] password checker?

Hi All

We have a scrubbing process that new machines go through before they get
registered for use on the network. One feature we'd like to add to this
process is a password checker for windows boxes. Basically, we'd like
something that checks the passwords for the users, and if it's
simple/easy, we'd like to get them to change it.

I was just checking if someone on this list might have something that
does these functions, or a part of these.
