 Create Password Policies That Baffle the Bad Guys, Not Your Users

Perfect Passwords examines passwords from the perspective of administrators trying to secure their networks, users trying to not forget their passwords, and hackers trying to crack these passwords to gain unauthorized access to everything from corporate networks to private bank accounts to pornographic Web sites. Author Mark Burnett has accumulated and analyzed more than 4 million user passwords. Through his research, he has discovered what works, what doesn’t work, and how many people probably have dogs named Spot.
