Pipal is a tool that allows you to perform analysis on a list of words. As a blue-teamer, it would probably benefit you to know what kind of patterns your users are using for their passwords.

Users go to great lengths to create crappy password patterns, but those patterns vary wildly from company to company. As an example in Tuscaloosa, I’m sure the words ‘bama’ and ‘tide’ are used in a huge percentage of passwords. When you’re conducting a password spray, it helps the red teamer a lot to know those terms in advance. As a blue teamer, we want to set up password filters that prevent the use of these key words.
