Debunking the Complex Password Myth
- Keith Palmgren
- Thursday, May 7th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm
Perhaps the worst advice you can give a user is "choose a complex password". The result is the impossible-to-remember password requiring the infamous sticky note on the monitor. In addition, that password gets used at a dozen sites at home, AND the very same password gets used at work. The final result ends up being the devastating password compromise. In this one-hour talk, we will look at the technical and non-technical (human nature) issues behind passwords. Attendees will gain a more complete understanding of passwords and receive solid advice on creating more easily remembered AND significantly stronger passwords at work and at home, for their users, for themselves, and even for their children.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
- SANS@Night: Evening presentations given after day courses have ended. This category includes Keynotes.
- Special Events: SANS-hosted events and other non-technical recreational offerings. This category includes, but is not limited to, Receptions and Information Tables.
- Vendor: Events hosted by external vendor exhibitors.
- Lunch & Learn: Short presentations given during the lunch break.
