pcheck - password checking switch

SYNOPSIS
password [current [new]] Elevation required

user

pcheck [on | off]

sha1 pwd

sha1x pwd

pcheck.tcl pwd

DESCRIPTION
Command password prints a password hint (if available).

If the current password is specified, it will be verified and the result printed.

If both the current password and a new password are specified, a hash of the new password will replace the value currently stored in the Windows Registry. Note that this operation requires elevation.

The current user details are:

 

The Username is the third value, and is always the Windows Account Name under which NAT32 is running. The fourth value is a password hint (if available).

Command pcheck turns password checking on or off. When password checking is on, the password must be entered to show or restore the Console window and the Quick dialog box.

Command pcheck.tcl checks the specified password for global uniqueness. This is done by sending the password hash to https://api.pwnedpasswords.com and analyzing the response.

Command sha1 prints the SHA1 hash of a specified password in base64 encoded form. Command sha1x prints the hash in hexadecimal form.

NOTES
The default password is nat32v2 for generic editions of NAT32.

A password hint is only available for default passwords and for passwords that have been verified.

Forgotten passwords can be removed by deleting one of the following Registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\NAT Software\NAT32v2\Password
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\NAT Software\NAT32v2\Password

NAT32 must be restarted if the password hash is ever deleted from the Registry. The default password will then apply.
