Best Practices for Creating a Password

Best Practices for Creating a Password

Passwords are usually the first line of defense when it comes to protecting computers and information assets. What happens when that first line of defense is not properly created? I think we already know…

One of the best ways to create a strong password is to create a pass-phrase.


One of the easiest way to remember and hardest way to crack password is to use pseudo-random password. The actual password is generated from an easy to remember pass-phrase that is important to the user. This phrase can be the words from a book that you particularly like, words from a song that you always remember with ease, a statement that some powerful figure made that you will NEVER forget. The key to a successful password is to create a phrase that is easy for you to remember, but no one else will ever think about attributing it to you.

Example of a Good Pass-phrase:

pass phrase: My Brother's Birthday Is april Twenty Second Nineteen Sixty three(3)
