Many web applications require passwords that are hard for users to remember, cumbersome to type, yet easy for hackers to crack. With affordable, lightning-fast hardware aiding hackers, we have recently seen a number of large organizations in the news for user-password security failures. Join us as we discuss common attacks on password lists/tables as well as some password storage practices that can make any cracking attempts not worth the attackers’ time.
