Hi,
I have used LC5 in the past for password auditing.  In particular, the columns for Audit Time and Password Score are very helpful when I try to encourage my employees to use stronger passwords.  Are there any other current password crackers that also give this info?

Cain and Able (a lot more then pure password auditing ..., and Windows only): http://www.oxid.it/cain.html
John the Ripper (multiplatform): http://www.openwall.com/john/
Ophcrack (multiplatform): http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/

But, I don't think that any of them generates a password score, at least not that I can tell of the top of my head.
BTW, some antivirus software flags the above as a pwdump 'virus'. Of course, they are not a real virus but a tool which lots of network admins don't like to have on there network, except for legitimate password auditing.

Yeah, I've got those, and they all work better than LC5 for normal cracking purposes, but I'm looking for that Time and Score functionality...

Sorry, I haven't seen it anywhere else then in L0phtcrack. Sadly, as time goes by it gets outdated since it's not updated anymore.
Of course, you could brew your own report...
