"xkpasswd" A Secure Memorable Password Generator
Once an exhaustive password search begins, the most important factor is password length!
- The password doesn't need to have “complex length”, because “simple length” is just as unknown to the attacker and must be searched for, just the same.
- “Simple length”, which is easily created by padding an easily memorized password with equally easy to remember (and enter) padding creates unbreakable passwords that are also easy to use.
- And note that simple padding also defeats all dictionary lookups, since even the otherwise weak phrase “Password”, once it is padded with additional characters of any sort, will not match a standard password guess of just “Password.”
- If you make the result long and memorable, you'll have super-strong passwords that are also easy to use.
