Security 05 – Passwords: Best Case, Worst Case, Upper Case, Lower Case

Passwords, what are they good for? We can do the entire podcast on just this one topic. Instead of boring everyone, we quickly touch on what makes a good password, and why longer passwords are more important than short but complex passwords. Next we talk about why password requirements do not increase security, and actually cause more harm. Finally we talk about our best practices for the average person, and the use for a password manager.
