Abstract or Summary:
I will present a new tool to fix this issue, and increase the potential for password complexity requirements. Acting as a language agnostic web service, the tool will allow the developers of any application to test prospective passwords against highly configurable requirements. By performing checks in this manner we can eliminate common password creation techniques, including but not limited to: keyboard walking, single base word leetspeak transformations, and passwords based on dates.
A discussion of complexity requirements, user behavior, and tool creation will be followed by the demo and release of an open source web service.
