Internet - January 5, 2000 - Noncon has released PalmCrack, the
password testing tool for the Palm Computing Platform. Designed to
help security professionals determine the strength of passwords, PalmCrack
is able to check UNIX and NT passwords against a dictionary and decrypt
certain Cisco router passwords.

Professional through the PalmVII and the IBM WorkPad series. It requires
31KB to 1MB of memory depending on the size of the dictionary installed.
