Important à comprendre: comment créer un mot-de-passe facile à retenir et difficilement "devinable" pour un pirate.

Concrètement, mettez au moins:
- 1 chiffre
- 1 lettre minuscule
- 1 lettre majuscule
- 1 caractère spécial (ponctuation, par exemple)
et mettez beaucoup de caractères.

Cette manière de faire n'exclut pas les mots-de-passe faciles à retenir.

Par contre, j'ai déjà rencontré d'anciens systèmes, où certains caractères spéciaux ne passaient pas, où la longueur était limitée...
Padded passwords - how big is your haystack?

Which of the following two passwords is stronger,
more secure, and more difficult to crack?

D0g.....................

PrXyc.N(n4k77#L!eVdAfp9

The first one is harder for a computer to find. Because once we go bruteforce, password length is the only thing that matters.

The whole point of a good password is to be easy to type and remember for a human and still hard to find for a computer — and most advices about choosing a strong password tell the exact opposite.

Of course, avoid any sentence from any book (dictionary attack). And adapt your padding policy do not use "D0g+21 dots", try "c@t+23 semi-colons";-)

Remember to not reuse password, though (https://xkcd.com/792/). So, a password manager like Keepass still makes sense (although Bruce Schneier's PasswordSafe is more flexible and still opensource, but it has less free binaries).

Padded password is probably a good alternative method for choosing a password manager master password.

Ça me rappelle mon passage dans une entreprise où travaillaient des typographes (dont un, m'a-t-il dit, auteur de l'algorithme informatique de la césure française).
