My password evaluator, http://geodsoft.com/cgi-bin/pwcheck.pl , has been online since April 2001. It uses multiple unabridged English dictionaries, plus common names and passwords, combined without duplication, to check for words used in passwords. It checks for all the transformations that can normally be done by password cracking tools. It defaults to checking for words that are interrupted by one or more non alpha characters. It also checks for sequences including ASCII and keyboard sequences, in both directions, with wrap and also alternate character sequences. It checks for repeat characters and too many of the same character in a password. It checks for repeat character groups. Many potential conditions result in one or more errors. If an error is reported (the equivalent of unacceptable if this were used to check a system password) no strength rating is given. If no error conditions are present it may still report some warnings, but will always give a strength rating.
The workings of my evaluator can be checked at the above URL. The default conditions checked for changed in 2012 but the basic workings have not changed since 2001. That my evaluator has been online since 2001 can be checked at https://archive.org . Search for my home page link http://geodsoft.com and select the one from April 1, 2001. Then click on the link to Password Evaluator at the bottom of the site map. It will bring up an image of my password evaluator. This is from Dec. 2003. Apparently Archive.org did not pick up my evaluator until then, but I never put a link on my site that was to an unfinished page or script that was not working. The appearance of my password evaluator was constant from early 2001 to mid or late 2012.
