Votre note
Improve your passwords without losing your cool, thanks to Joe Kissell's expert advice. Start on the path to modern password security by watching "Joe of Tech" (Lien -> http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/news/joe-of-tech-on-passwords) comic in the Contents & Intro tab below (scroll down!). Read the book to understand the problems and apply a real-world strategy that includes choosing a password manager, auditing your existing passwords, and dealing with situations where automated tools can't help. "Awesome.
You did an amazing job breaking it down. This should be mandatory reading." --Rich Mogull, CEO at Securosis This ebook helps you overcome frustrations that arise when attempting to design a strategy for dealing with the following password problems: - 9-character passwords with upper- and lowercase letters, digits, and punctuation are NOT strong enough. - You CANNOT turn a so-so password into a great one by tacking a punctuation character and number on the end. - It is NOT safe to use the same password everywhere, even if it's a great password. - A password is NOT immune to automated cracking because there's a delay between login attempts. - Even if you're an ordinary person without valuable data, your account may STILL be hacked, causing you problems. - You can NOT manually devise "random" passwords that will defeat potential attackers. - Just because a password doesn't appear in a dictionary, that does NOT necessarily mean that it's adequate. - It is NOT a smart idea to change your passwords every month. - Truthfully answering security questions like "What is your mother's maiden name?" does NOT keep your data more secure. - Adding a character to a 10-character password does NOT make it 10 percent stronger. - Easy-to-remember passwords like "correct horse battery staple" will NOT solve all your password problems. - All password managers are NOT pretty much the same. - Your passwords will NOT be safest if you never write them down and keep them only in your head. "Joe handles a confusing and scary subject more clearly and calmly than I would have thought possible.
I'll be recommending this book to just about everybody I know." --William Porter, database developer, author, photographer
