User Access and Identity Management

Speaking of security(ish) things (which I was), in one of those annoyingly regular events, I had to change my AD password yesterday.

So I changed it from one incorrectly-spelt, mixed-case Welsh town (with two numbers and three special characters).

For the new password I chose another incorrectly-spelt, mixed-case Welsh town (with two other numbers and three other special characters).

Trouble is I can’t remember where I put the mis-spelling in the new password.

And it’s a longer placename than any of the easy choices:

Cwmystwyth
Bwlch (or Bwlchgwyn)
Rhydymwyn
Twyn
Ynysybwl

    Well, I put that first one into Dashlane and it reckons a month to crack. And that’s without it being butchered with special characters.
    Welsh place names obviously make great p455w0rDs!
