A New Security Term to Add to Your Mental Library:

Posted 03-16-2013 at 03:28 PM by Nbiser

Security plays a pivotal role in our society. Without security our computer systems would fall part and money would be lost. Good passwords are an essential part of this infrastructure. As most of you know, good passwords should be long, and have a good mix of characters, letters, and numbers. Example: a9&dd4$Fd is pretty good, while 123 is not good. The new term I would like to introduce is the "Rip Van Winkle Aproach." The idea behind this ideology is to make such a long password that it will take a 100 years at least to crack. Now, I know that many of us don't have the time, patience, or IQ to memorize such a long password, however, our most important device or account should have a password that is this strong. Hopefully, most of us have a password like this, no matter how hard it is to remember: just remember Rip Van Winkle as you make your passwords.
