Authors: Arnold Reinhold


Abstract or Summary:
Like it or not, security question password reset isnít going away. Most organizations find it to be a cost effective approach that seems to work in practice. While there are many problems with this approach, one has received little attention: how to safely store the answers. I show that common methods used for storing password validation information are not suitable for security questions, and propose better alternatives.
