> more than 124,000 words, PS-Password Manager scans an AS/400 in
> minutes and compiles a report displaying profiles of all users
> currently employing weak or easily identified passwords. PS-Password
> Manager can shut down the users, force a change of password on the
> user's next login, disable the users, or send an automatic message to
> the user explaining that the user's password is not secure. The
> utility also keeps historical records of each user's last 32
> passwords, lets administrators add custom words to the dictionary,
> creates a log file that identifies users who chronically pick weak
> passwords, and is available in English, French, and German.
