Ncrack is a new brute force tool made by nmap, it’s actually a alpha version but the product is really interesting to verify your password policies compliance and security. It support ftp, telnet, ssh, rdp … protocols.
Easy to use in command line, I only tested it with rdp, unfortunately with no success even knowing the password to be found. I assume it’s just an alpha bug. In my point of view the multi protocol implementation makes it an interesting tool for audit automation.
