As is my custom, at the beginning of the new year I'll be changing my passwords. I use passphrases for my most sensitive accounts. If you're not familiar with the concept of passphrases, they're pretty simple to construct. Here are some examples of passphrases:
- Rage, rage against the dying of the light!
- Sugar and spice, and all to entice.
37: I miss butterfly kisses. =(
Unfortunately, few systems accept full-on sentences of the length I appreciate. For those systems, I make up a 10 character password with upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
I encourage you all to adopt strong password policies.
