pw-inspector - A tool to reduce the password list
pw-inspector [-i FILE] [-o FILE] [-m MINLEN] [-M MAXLEN] [-c MINSETS] -l -u -n -p -s
PW-Inspector reads passwords in and prints those which meet the requirements. The return code is the number of valid passwords found, 0 if none was found. Use for security: check passwords, if 0 is returned, reject password choice. Use for hacking: trim your dictionary file to the pw requirements of the target. Usage only allowed for legal purposes.
-i FILE file to read passwords from (default: stdin) -o FILE file to write valid passwords to (default: stdout) -m MINLEN minimum length of a valid password -M MAXLEN maximum length of a valid password -c MINSETS the minimum number of sets required (default: all given) -h, --help Show summary of options.
-l lowcase characters (a,b,c,d, etc.) -u upcase characters (A,B,C,D, etc.) -n numbers (1,2,3,4, etc.) -p printable characters (which are not -l/-n/-p, e.g. $,!,/,(,*, etc.) -s special characters - all others not withint the sets above
