Currently we are working on a monthly internal security test which among other should contain a verification of the real password strength the users choose. For this reason security team ask me to extract the password hashes of all users via LDAP.

what the security team want to do is extracting the hashes though we can run a syllable attack against them to verify if the passwords are really or just technically good.

is this method good and safe, I'm afraid the hash go in the wrong hand.
