Password Strength Testing Tool, add password iterations

Feature name

Add password iteration (PBKDF2) count input text box (accept like “310000”), and output adjustment to “time to crack”.

Feature function

Augment this page:

Take this superficially seemingly OK password, 9W&%r24v. Turns out it is “weak”, with a zxcvbn “time to crack” of 3 hours. Not great. But if that is hashed with 310,000 iterations, maybe we’d get 1000s of years of “protection”?

Even better: Add the possibility to change how strong a hypothetical attacker is (in hashes/second).
