Long - non complex passwords
At Hamilton College we are considering the use of very long, simple passwords in lieu of those that are short and very complex. If you currently require long passwords (12 char or greater) at your institution, we would be grateful if you could answer the following questions.
How did you prepare your campus for the use of long passwords?
resistance did you face from your community and how was it
What is the minimum number of characters you require? Why?
- Has your use of long passwords improved password security (e.g. users aren’t writing them on post-it notes)?
