CMU CyLab and the Perceptions of Password Strength

NewImage

From Carnegie Mellon University News:

The team of researchers, based in the CyLab Usable Privacy and Security (CUPS) Lab, asked 165 online participants — 51 percent male, 49 percent female from 33 U.S. states ranging from 18 to 66 years of age — to rate the comparative security and memorability of 25 juxtaposed password pairs. In addition, participants were asked to articulate how they would expect attackers to try to guess their passwords.

“As companies are designing tools that help people make passwords, they should not only be giving users real-time feedback on the strength of their passwords, but also be providing data-driven feedback on how to make them stronger,” Ur said.

The team will incorporate these findings into an open-source password feedback tool, which they aim to release before the end of the year.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
