Passwords; They're Terrible

We use passwords all the time to authenticate against services ranging from social media accounts to sensitive banking info and everything in-between. They're the keys to our many digital kingdoms - but are we using bad keys?

In this talk, we explore the security of different kinds of passwords by crafting a password for a theoretical account. Password complexity, social engineering attacks, and more are covered in the quest to make a good password. We also touch on ways of hardening authentication beyond just passwords.
