Sec 340: Week 5 Discussion
Application Password Cracking" Please respond to the following:
- As an end user, determine the best approach that you would use to ensure that your application password is difficult to crack but still memorable enough that you would not need to record the password. Determine whether or not your approach would change if you were in charge of security for a sizeable organization with 2000-3000 users. Justify your response.
- As a forensics specialist, describe the steps that you would consider taking in order to crack highly secure application passwords. Next, determine whether or not you believe password cracking exercises on end user accounts, performed by internal information security employees, should be a part of ongoing processes and the overall security posture. Provide a rationale for your response.
