A little note on Password Strength

I've always wondered why organizations encourage such strict, hard to remember, password combinations, ultimately resulting in the user being forced to write down the password, making the password less secure.

xkcd, a web comic, defines the problem perfectly...xkcd: Password Strength

  1. I've always been a big fan of post-it notes as two-factor authentication... if I write my ridiculously long and hard to remember password down and carry it with me, it's now "something I know" *and* "something I have".
