RE: How do you conduct a password audit?

It might be very time consuming to conduct such audits. I think a better
approach is to set up a password creation policy that dictates the types of
characters that must exist in a password, and the rules governing the patterns,
e.g. do not use numbers that follow each other or passwords u have used before.

Plus couple that with a password expiration policy.
And then go have a kit kat bar! :)

But I do like the idea of a cron job scanning the shadow file.
