Good luck in your senior project for college. I took the survery as well.


For my important passwords I use a random set of letters, a capital and a number.

But for my wireless password, since I don't have to remember it, I go all out. 63 random printable ASCII characters is my game and, from what I understand, most WPA crackers are dictionary/reference based -- suffice it to say it has never been compromised.

Good stuff to distribute to the masses.

Quiz is complete. Hope it helps your research, Kyle!

I like to use Keepass. It comes as a standalone program, as well as portable so that it can be run with the portable apps suite. It has pretty good encryption for the database of your passwords as well as a built in password generator available to make all your passwords.

It can be found here.

GL with your project. Today any popular hash algorythm ( md5, sha1 etc ) can be bruteforced really easy. The only way to keep your password safe ( even if your passhash was stolen from web-service DB, for example ) - combination of lower+upper case alphas, numerics and special characters(if they are allowed by service) with string length more then 10 chars (password length is MORE important than characters variations).
For example, using utility writen with nCUDA on nVIDIA GeForce 9600GT you can brute md5 hash with speed ~200 000 000 combinations/sec. On high-end graphic cards ( or if they are in SLI ) speed is higher than 400-500mln combinations/sec (:

EDIT: And another way - using so called 'salt', so thief must steal not only your passhash, but salt 'key' too.

done your survey but none of your examples are complex enough tbh

my standard password is an md5 hash of an already complex password used it for years (about 10) since i memorised it one day at work for some odd reason and its just stuck ever since

You'll be happy to know that both our TC and Forum databases use a number of hash combinations on top of salt.
