I am going to restrain my impulse to respond in kind so I will respond as one who knows a bit about encryption. You would be very much at risk if you create your password our of the name for a person for thing. One simply run a series of dictionaries against it to break it. Other schemes depend on how stong it is ie the mathematical combinations to be tested and the the systems encoding scheme itself. I am not trying to be a password police. I am offering advice to those who care to protect themselves.quote:Originally posted by Bash:quote:Originally posted by D2:Rule number one is you do not create passwords from common names of people or things. It is best you use a word created from a sequence of uppercase and lower case letters and symbols greater than eight characters in length but 16 such characters is best. Passwords created out of common words can be broken in a few minutes if that long.quote:Originally posted by Bash:
