linux default iconctypescracklib Publisher's description

Cracklib is great, and in newer packages there is a Python module available for it.

Cracklib is great, and in newer packages there is a Python module available for it. However, on systems that don't yet have it, such as CentOS 5, I've written a ctypes wrapper for the system cryptlib. This would also work on a system that you can't install python-libcrypt. It does require python with
ctypes available, so for CentOS 5 you have to install and use the python26 package.

It also has the advantage that it can take the username and check for passwords that contain it or are substantially similar, like the libcrypt "FascistGecos" function but without requiring the user to exist in /etc/passwd.

Some example uses:

>>> FascistCheck('jafo1234', 'jafo')
'it is based on your username'
>>> FascistCheck('myofaj123', 'jafo')
'it is based on your username'
>>> FascistCheck('jxayfoxo', 'jafo')
'it is too similar to your username'
>>> FascistCheck('cretse')
'it is based on a dictionary word'

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
