Sausalito, California-based Baseline Software Inc has announced a password screening package, Password Coach, to alleviate a Unix security vulnerability by making password guessing, the source of most high-visibility break-ins, more difficult. Password Coach subjects user-chosen passwords to 45 different strength tests to ensure all users employ difficult-to-guess passwords. Source code is now shipping with licences priced at from $5,000 to $27,000. It comes with a 140,000+ English weak password dictionary. Other dictionaries, which collectively screen over 3m weak passwords, are available in 15 languages. All are customisable.
