Package: john Version: 1.7.2-3~bpo40+1 Severity: wishlist I've configured PAM to restrict password creation to 8 or more characters. It would therefore be a good idea to add an option to throw out passwords that are less than a given number of characters since it's just a waste of time to try them.
For example, let's say we had: Minlength = 8 If we were considering the word "fred" from the wordlist, we'd ignore "fred", but would accept the mangled "fredfred". Thanks! p.s. I suppose for symmetry, we could have a Maxlength option too. -- System Information: Debian Release: 4.0 APT prefers stable APT policy: (500, 'stable'), (20, 'unstable') Architecture: i386 (i686) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash Kernel: Linux 2.6.18-6-686 Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) (ignored: LC_ALL set to en_US.utf8) Versions of packages john depends on: ii john-data 1.7.2-3~bpo40+1 active password cracking tool - ch ii libc6 2.3.6.ds1-13etch7 GNU C Library: Shared libraries ii libssl0.9.8 0.9.8c-4etch3 SSL shared libraries john recommends no packages. -- no debconf information -- Pkg-john-devel mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-john-devel
