When users change their passwords every 90 days, they often aren't dramatically changing the password, Grassi says.

"I'm pretty sure you're not changing your entire password; you're shifting one character," he says. "Everyone does that, and the bad guys know that."
Well, they do now!! Thanks a lot Mr. Grassi! wallbash.gif Guess I'll have to start changing two letters!!! rolleyes.gif

The new Guidelines are published here: https://pages.nist.gov/800-63-3/sp800-63b.htm CAUTION! Reading this manual will cause severe eyelid drooping and may cause neck injury!! Please have a responsible adult carefully watch you for signs of boredom!!

No responsible adult available? How about reading a report in a much shorter and sixth grade English: All-Tech Considered story Yes, Kimberly, this was on NPR. tease.gif

No prob. I've read similar articles on various tech sites over the past several weeks. NPR is slow catching on to the news. wink.gif tease.gif

This explains a bit about why my linked article comes late in the year.

For the graphically entertained, here is an explanation in a cartoon: Password Strength

Seems wisdom does come with age... at least to some.
Maybe I'm just not old enough, yet?

I'm afraid that people being people this problem is not ready for an easy fix. I rely on methods based on taxonomy and randomness but these passwords could easily be
broken by brute force methods. Maybe the thing I saw about pricking your finger and bleeding for a DNA match login is the thing; drawback would be the need for lots of
bandaids! rolleyes.gif

I've never thought of using taxidermy for creating passwords. On the other hand it would seem to gut the process. Perhaps just the bones would be enough, however. dntknw.gif Groaner.gif
