We had a sales person ask for a recommendation on personal password management. Of course everyone recommended Password Safe. But then the fun began:
Pen and paper?
And tape it to the bottom of your laptop.
I just use “password” for all mine. Keeps it real easy
#4 – This one is mine:
I developed my own block cipher and use it to encrypt all my passwords.
Well, I say “developed”. To be fair, it is really just a derivative work. I basically improved on the AES standard by making it a 1024 bit key size and a 256 bit block size.
Of course, with the quantum computer I just developed, it won’t take much to crack that algorithm. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
I started to do that too but it was too easy.
#6 – the last one
Don’t beat yourself up! Try something a little more challenging. I use the complex XOR operation with the following key. Works every time!
x=a e=s n=p j=w q=r p=o f=d
That was fun.
