the secret in making password fun!

Last time i made a comment on General Angrines post, ‘PASSWORD SUCK‘. It really sucks for Network Administrators and users who are into serious security business.

I want to share with you how I make my password very strong with at least 20 words with lots of fun when changing over which may be mandatory in some environment

You may be required to meet the password strength  of 6 characters, and in most cases, they are to expire in a couple of months, subjected to a mandatory renewal. Now this process becomes very frustrating and I have come across passwords written and placed under keyboard.

I have adopted a phrase mode which i can decide to change over,where I dont need to change over the password entirely, but a word in the phrase. this can be done with the combination of three or more strong words

Check this out. i have a password idiocracymeltsmetabolism (idiocracy melts metabolism). this is cool, i can change the middle word melts to be diffuses then i have mediocracydiffusesmetabolism. since i have this phrase it’s fun cos i really know what im doing.

better still i can you my local language for a passphrase, which gives me more words obaatheresayeobaapa obaa theresa ye obaa pa (Lady theresa is a good lady).

This is fun, i can change the word theresa to a more more local name memunatu. i think this this is a very strong idea for high technos like me. really passowords should not suck when when it’s your job, people ask me how i keep such long passwords in mind and i say i have a secret

Using this trck you can capitalise any of the words, and when you are able to add the current year to the ending, you meet the password security policy without hutsle mediocracyDIFFUSESmetabolism2007.

    Here are a few tips for blogging (although I’m new too):

    1) Use proper grammar (punctuation, capitilization, etc.).
    2) Enter down and start new paragraphs, blockquote things, and color text (not excessively).
    3) Use spellcheck.

    Doing the above will help make your blog readable.

    4) Delete the comment on your first blog (it was created automatically by WordPress).
    5) Change the About page on your blog with some information about you.

    All these tips should make your blog more professional.

    Cheers,

    Ivan

    Hmm!!! That is a good try. I thought however that you make it more complex by introducing some capitalisation .. that will make almost impossible for people to guess .. eg ObaaMamunatuyEObaapA.

    Great Techies like YOU should be recognised in the newspapers .. I guess. Good Show

    Well, what can i say? Blogs are like diaries. we choose to play with words anyhow we want. The most important thing is making your message clear. The play on words makes it more fun to read.

    Cheers!
