Re: identifying weak passwords

Thanks you very much.
My passwords are SSHA encoded so I compiled a patched JtR.
Just for the record, I first used ldapsearch to export the
userid:userPassword tuples in a file and was trapped by
the base64 encoding of SSHA passwords.
Using the Net::LDAP perl module to generate this file works great.
