The week before last, I confessed to password tweaking.

Recently Troy Hunt released 320 million hashed passwords collected from breaches (https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords) so I thought I’d run an experiment on that data based on common password tweaking techniques. I wanted to see if I could find tweaked variations of a given password in Troy’s data set.

If you’re an IT pro, you’re likely aware of the very real damage that can result from even one user’s credentials being compromised. Once attackers have a foothold in your systems, they can linger for months, steadily increasing their permissions until they find and steal your most valuable data.

But one very real risk is typically overlooked:  the social and personal credentials of our end users.

While there is no denying that we need to remove our dependency on the password as a primary method of authentication, the question remains how do we get there?
