password_validator.py

With some help from a couple of friends I started working on a Python script for checking the strength of a password. I decided posting it here and I strongly encourage suggestions for improvements.

This first version has the following features:

– Check the strength of a password;

– Provide summary of the introduced characters;

– Determine the entropy of the password;

– Determine total number of attempts to brute force it;

– Provide recommendations;

– Compute hash values (sha1, sha224, sha 384, sha 256, sha 512, md5) of the password;

A small snip of a result looks as follows:

I am looking forward to hearing suggestions!
