Not sure how resistant is your password to real world hacker password enumeration vectors? There’s an app for that.
The folks over at Literatecode have developed an IPhone app called isPasswordOK to help the average person select a strong password.
Passwords authentication poses a nightmare for users and security departments. They can’t be too complex because then they get written down somewhere where others can see them (in one case the employee wrote a password on the ceiling board over their desk). Then…obviously they can’t be too simple. But passwords are all we have in many cases, so let’s do our best to choose a good one – and this is not as simple as many folk believe it to be.
This app is a nice innovation, long overdue, and sorely needed, as demonstrated by the myriad of password compromises globally.
