Do Passwords Better
Because passwords can be less annoying

What is Passfault?

Summary:

Passfault evaluates the strength of passwords accurately enough to predict the time to crack. It makes creating passwords and password policies significantly more intuitive and simple.

Accurate:
Measures the size of password patterns and identifies more weak passwords, yet allows strong passwords that don't match traditional password policies
Informative:
Provides detailed analysis of the password and sub patterns within the password, so users quickly learn how to make strong passwords without training.
Simple:
Presents the password strength as the "time to crack" to help communicate the risk of poor paswords, providing the incentive to create stronger passwords.
Powerful:
Empowers administrators to know and control the strength and risk of the organization's passwords.

What does Passfault Do:

When setting a password, Passfault examines the password, looking for common patterns. Passfault than measures the strength of the patterns and combinations of patterns. The end result is a more academic and accurate measurement of password strength.

When setting a password policy, passfault simplifies configuration to one simple, intuitive and meaningful measurement: the time to crack
