I was installing 11.1 and it tests passwords with cracklib - this is a great idea... Our company was shut down by a runaway virus a couple of times in the last decade. It turns out my Lotus Notes password is in cracklib!! So those viruses (or whatever) must have accessed our Lotus Notes records.

The only way I found this out was that, on a whim, I tried my Lotus Notes password during an install of 11.1. Now, I'm looking for an application that interfaces to cracklib to test passwords, and I've found password generators, etc., but none with a built-in cracklib interface. Does anyone know of an application that can do this? I'd like to test my passwords, but dont' want to have to run the installer every time I need to check a password!
