Simplify Your Passwords
Steve Endow from Dynamics GP Land brought this comic from XKCD.com to my notice a few months back and I have been meaning to re-post it for a while. I think that this comic/cartoon highlights that most computer users are creating “strong” passwords (ie. at least 8 characters with 3 out of uppercase, lowercase, numeric & symbols) that are hard for humans to remember and fairly easy for computers to crack. It suggests using a pass phrase of random words that have a meaning to you instead.
