Good passwords theory
30 Sep 2010
All of us are using passwords and most of us are typing them several times a day. And everyone knows the criteria to generate a good password. Random passwords are very strong from protection point of view but not from usability point of view.
No body think about password unforgettable-ness and less-painful-to-type-ness. I saw many passwords that are very painful because they are just random.
And I think it's nice to lose some randomness and make it easier to type and remember.
There is still a lot of enough strong passwords that match this criteria as well.
Try to type and remember something like:
sudosuamigo1; s3host-large you&me2gether
And you feel much better.
