  • Password cracking methods

Course Content


Password cracking techniques are divided into two categories: offline and online. On a live host or system, online attacks are carried out via a brute-force or wordlist attack against a login form, session, or other type of authentication approach.

Even after being cautious with the figures, we still arrive at a 1 in 3 risk of being hacked. Users find it difficult to remember a single password for each site. That makes it much easier for a single person with very rudimentary skills to breach our security and gain access to our information.

"123456" is at the top of the Hacker's List for a reason: it's the most popular password on the planet (0.62 percent of 9.3M passwords analyzed).

At least 8 characters are required for a good password. It should not include any of your personal information, such as your real name, username, or business name. It must be distinct from any prior passwords you've used. It should not include any words that are completely spelled.

  • Personal information should never be used.
  • Use a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters.
  • Make the length of your password a priority.
  • Never use the same password twice.
  • Don't use real words.
