Password Auditing

Weak passwords are as dangerous as leaving the front door open to an attacker. Password Auditing is an economical and efficient way of identifying potential flaws in your users’ password selection process.

Most users undergo some type of annual training, which may or may not cover the topic of choosing strong passwords.  Most websites or organizational policies will require users to select passwords that meet a particular set of requirements:  Be a minimum of eight (8) characters in length, contain at least one upper case, one lower case, one number (possibly even one special character). Sound familiar? Often times, even with restrictive password requirements, users will choose an easy to remember password. If those passwords are easy to remember, it is a good chance that they are easy to guess as well.

The CampusGuard Offensive Security Team utilizes proprietary, in-house developed software tools which use state-of the art algorithms to gather user account information. They then test authentication using uniquely generated password lists and most commonly used passwords in an attempt to identify weak passwords before an attacker does. Each Password Audit is highly customized to meet your specific needs and goals.
