I am looking for a product that I can use to identify end users that log into our network (NT4.0 going to Active Directory this summer) using weak passwords. Preferably you can select NOT to see the actual passwords but base the weakness on how quickly it could be cracked. Can you recommend a product for me?

It's a fact that passwords are one of the most critical network and Internet security threats. A strong/strict Password Policy can help avoid weak passwords on the network.

Coming to your problem, there are a couple of products that can help in your task. L0phtCrack and Aelita ScanPro are two of the most widely used software. They both have very good auditing and reporting capabilities along with a multiple domain support.
