Abstract or Summary:
This paper describes the Diceware method for making randomly chosen passwords easy to memorize and suggests several changes to the original scheme to make it even easier with little or no loss of security, along with a system to help users to recover from partial mistakes when recalling their passphrases. Two implementations in real world scenarios are discussed as well. It is argued that by using this method, ordinary dictionary attacks become uneffective.
