Strong Passwords a Security Must

The strength of Internet passwords is getting renewed attention, Bruce Schneier notes, because of the hacking of celebrity accounts on Apple’s iCloud servers. “The attack didn’t exploit a flaw in iCloud,” he writes, “the attack exploited weak passwords.”

Schneier, thereby, reenforces his longstanding advice to computer users: Rely on a well-regarded password manager to create and store your passwords. He’s been developing one himself, but there are others out there. Here, for instance, is Information Week’s listing of “10 Top Password Managers.” You can find more by Googling “password manager”.
