Maybe I'm missing something here - how can dictionary search be several orders of magnitute slower than brute force? Looping over all 1/2/3 letter words in a dictionary over an hour? Really? I could do that in over an hourThis means it takes the following time to hack a simple password like "sun":
•Brute-force: 3 minutes
•Common Word: 3 minutes
•Dictionary: 1 hour 20 minutes
I think it was suggesting the spaces... strange article all in all.So the article suggested that using three uncommon words were both easy to remember and highly secure. Does this include adding a space or without?
Thisisfun or This is fun? I assume the former, as sign ins don't allow spaces.
So you think I should change from 'password1'
The only easy way to have a complex password is to use a sentence such as 'Iate1biscuit', pee easy to remember, and almost impossible to brute-force in a reasonable time.
that's the classic outcome when enforced complexity is ramped up too much
I worked at one place where you had to regularly change your password, and it said 'Your password cannot be the same as any past or future passwords'
