Abstract or Summary:
The creation of strong, secure passwords is vital in our life today due to the implications of compromised access to our data. Passwords are commonly used to prevent unauthorized access to important information, to guarantee security of personal information, and to prevent unauthorized access to various services. It seems that people tend to veer toward adopting the simplest characters in forming their passwords and they also tend to reuse the same password for multiple accounts. This is natural due to the weakness of the average human mind but it can lead to attack from any of the password-cracking tools. This article will examine best practice in creating secure passwords.
