Password Auditor - Find Weak Credentials - Use Cases

The tool scans an URL, IP address or hostname for network services that require authentication (ex. HTTP web forms, SSH, FTP, MYSQL, RDP, etc) and detects weak credentials by trying to login using the usernames and passwords from the input wordlists.

Network Penetration Testing

The tool can be used to easily check if any common username/password was used in any network service. This could be an easy entry point into the network.

Self-assessment for Sysadmins

As a system administrator, you want to check if any of your users have set weak passwords on the services exposed to the internet. This verification should be done periodically.

Network Audit

When auditing the configuration settings of a network infrastructure, it is always needed to check the usage of default passwords (ex. cisco/cisco, admin/admin, etc).

Technical Details


About

Password Auditor is an autonomous password auditing solution for network services and web applications.

Its purpose is to automate the manual work performed when using tools such as Medusa, Hydra or Ncrack by automatically detecting the services which require authentication and launching the password audit with the right parameters.

One of the unique advantages of this tool is that it automatically detects web forms in web applications and it automatically attempts to login with the given credentials. It has the capability to detect if a web form authentication was performed with success or not.

As a result, you can easily find web interfaces with weak passwords (ex. Jenkins, Tomcat, PhpMyAdmin, Cisco routers, etc) together with network services as SSH, FTP, MySQL, MSSQL, RDP, etc, having default credentials.


Parameters

Parameter Description
Target This is the hostname or IP address to scan
Ports Choose which ports to check for authentication (default: Top 100 common ports)
Services Choose the services you want to be audited (HTTP, SSH, FTP, etc). They will be automatically matched to the open ports. Example: Apache running on port 2174 will trigger the HTTP module.
Wordlists Specify a custom wordlist for usernames/ passwords


How it works

The Password Auditor starts by doing a port scan and service discovery against the target systems in order to discover which services require authentication.

The next step is to try common username/password combinations (taken from a predefined wordlist) for each service found in the previous step. In case the service is web based, Password Auditor automatically detects the login interfaces and parameters for authentication. The tool is capable of knowing if a web-form authentication was performed successfully or not.
