When it comes to passwords, there are a variety of opinions.
And that is the problem. Most people choose password is based on requirements brought forced to them by the system.
Still, on password breaches, data analysis shows that most passwords are very weak.
When asking user is why they choose week passwords the common answer is that they can’t remember complex passwords, and H presents too much of a challenge for them.
Yet even choosing a supposedly strong password based on requirements isn’t necessarily the best solution.
I could go into the mathematics of Y system required, strong passwords are weaker than actually choosing a common phrase that you can easily remember.
And that brings us to the solution to having a strong password, Which is not only easy to remember but is mathematically even more complex.
Take a phrase that you can easily remember: the sun is shining in my street at house number 17.
Running a brute force attack on the passphrase like that is very complex. Yet, it is very easy for you to remember because it’s going to be difficult to forget where you actually live.
This is obviously only and example. However, it shows that complex passwords don’t have to be complex and such a way that they are very difficult for a user to remember. Plus, the typing of such information is very easy.
Let me know what you think about this password strategy which is been around for quite a while.
