Passwords

Every week we hear about another computer break-in; some of these result in password lists being taken.  Hackers with a list of encrypted passwords can try millions of passwords per second, to see which ones work.  Would your password stand up to a high-speed guessing game?

In this class, we'll take a high-level look at how the bad guys are attacking passwords, and how to build a strong, complex password that you can actually remember.  We'll also take a look at password management software, and briefly discuss two-factor authentication.
