some thoughts for  password:
  • "We've been using a commonly available graphics processor to test the integrity of typical passwords of the kind in use here at Georgia Tech and many other places,Right now we can confidently say that a seven-character password is hopelessly inadequate - and as GPU power continues to go up every year, the threat will increase.Once Nvidia did that, interest in GPUs really started taking off,If you can write a C program, you can program a GPU now."--said Richard Boyd, a senior research scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI)

  • "Length is a major factor in protecting against brute forcing a password,A computer keyboard contains 95 characters, and every time you add another character, your protection goes up exponentially, by 95 times."--said by Joshua L. Davis, a GTRI research scientist

  • "Generating a rainbow table takes a long time,But if an attacker wants to crack many passwords quickly, once he's built a rainbow table it might then only take about 10 minutes per password rather than several days." -- said by Carl Mastrangelo, an undergraduate student in the Georgia Tech College of Computing
