Password Audit

The Service

A single weak password can expose your entire network to an external or internal attack. Password harvesting is one of the easiest and most commonly exploited network security threats.

Network users often employ passwords that conform to standard complexity and length rules but are based off of common dictionary terms. These passwords are easy to remember – and easy to break.

Our Password Audit can uncover weak passwords used within your institution and allow you to educate users on proper password utilization. An active directory password audit can show you who picks weak passwords before an attacker can exploit that weakness.

We use a forensically sound and completely safe process to extract password hashes from the active directory database. We do not use third-party tools like many other password auditing services, guaranteeing that your domain controllers remain online with no disruption of service or instability issues.

Our security lab has a high horsepower, state-of-the-art password cracking engine that was designed specifically for this task.

We provide yearly or quarterly assessment engagements.

The Scope of Work
  • All user password hashes will be collected from active directory and placed into our password cracking engine.
  • Password cracking attempts vary depending on the assessment, but are usually kept to 24, 48 or 72 hours.
  • Multiple methods of password cracking are utilized.
