In the video, he explains about some tricks using which password could be remembered very easily.
So, here are some prescribed steps by Kurt Muhl which can be used to generate a strong password as well as memorize that:
How to make a super-strong password?
- Try to come up with a sentence which is closely related to you.
That sentence could be “I and family booked a tour to Hawai for $5000”.
- Once you have come up with that sentence, take out the first alphabet from each of the words. So, here it is how it would look for the above sentence.
- Then, you can map those characters with easily remembered alphabets or letters from your keyboard.
Here is an example to replace some of the alphabets:
o: 0 (zero)
Z: 2 etc.
You can come up with your own combinations as well if you think those combinations are easy for to remember.
How NOT to put a password?
- Do not put passwords after the name of your girlfriend, your date of birth, your city, your postal code, your vehicle number etc.
- A hacker can make an exhaustive list of these passwords and by using brute force attack, your password might be tried out extensively.
Example of a weak password:
Let’s say, my favourite player is Sachin Tendulkar, I keep telling this to everybody, and his jersey number is 10. In this case, I might come up with a password such as “tendulkar10” which is a bad way of practicing a password.
Here is the complete video article on how to make a strong password.
