How strong are your passwords?

I stumbled on a good (very geeky) article about password strength last week. (I’ve since lost the link, or I’d add it here.) It turns out that my passwords aren’t as strong as I thought. So, I’ll be addressing that over the coming weeks by creating unique passwords for every web site, device and system that I log onto with long, complex passwords. Why go to all that trouble? I plan to explain this in a series of posts beginning today, including:

  • How are passwords cracked?
  • How strong are my current passwords?
  • How strong should my passwords be?
  • How can I handle password overload?
