Generate a password that NSA cannot crack!

Geek Girl Meetup Öresund

FOOD: Yes

LEVEL: Intermediate

Geek Girl Meetup Öresund, a network for women with passion for technology, digital media & entrepreneurship, invites you to an exciting evening on password security.



Passwords are one of the most common attack vectors of today. Humans tend to choose very bad passwords, mainly due to bad guidance. The old ”eight characters, a symbol, a capital and a number” recommendation is utterly outdated, and those passwords are cracked within seconds.



But how can we create good, unique passwords that are easy for humans to remember but hard for computers to guess?



How can you manage a big number of unique passwords? How do you ensure that the services you’re using even care about your security?



The evening will start with a presentation on password security by Emma Lilliestam - Security Expert, followed by Q&A and pizza. Thereafter everyone will get a chance to generate their own password which can withstand a state level attack.



The password generation method that will be used is called Diceware. Diceware is a method for creating easy-to-remember passwords that have the potential of being impossible to break.
