Need Password UtilityLocked
My company is about to implement (for the first time ever) a password policy. In addition to requiring regular changes, we’re going straight for the jugular: strong passwords – upper, lower, numeric and special characters.
Our client base is not technically adept. (No, really – I dare you to beat our regular calls involving what a “Start button” is….)
Given the user base, I’m very eager to provide them with a tool that will let them check their passwords in advance and give them feedback on which strong password criteria they haven’t fulfilled.
I used something like this in signing up for a service: I entered my password and with every criteria I fulfilled, a red “X” changed to a green “check”.
I’ve looked at alot of password generator tools, but none of them seem to provide this type of simplistic criteria check.
Can anyone recommend a utility or script that I could distribute in conjunction with this rollout?
