Passphrase Smarter Than Password

Posted by Carl E. Reid, CSI Tuesday, November 8, 2016

With the Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook passwords leaks, I thought this might be a good tutorial to share with staff, to make your technology customer support team's job easier. Modify as you feel appropriate. 

How To Smartly Create Passwords 

  • Don't re-use passwords. One ultra-secure one won't be any good if someone finds it.
  • While combining upper and lower case passwords with numbers to alter a memorable word - M4rsin$pace - is often advised, these are more easily cracked than you might think
  • The best strategy advice is to create a memorable, PASSPHRASE sentence [don't use these samples]:  I$wimatTHEbeach2016 | "I am a $erious Winner in 2017" is better than "My name is John", and use the first letter of each word with punctuation: "Iaa$Wi2017"
  • Consider using a password manager such as 1Password, which generates and stores your secure passwords.
