Minimal-Feedback Hints for Remembering Passwords

“Passwords are a widely used mechanism for user authentication and are thus critical to the security of many systems.

While personal information and real words are relatively easy for a user to remember, they make weak passwords from a security point of view because vulnerable to informed guessing and dictionary attacks.” (Morten Hertzum – uiGarden)
