Password strength can be defined as the measure of immunity that passwords possess against any kind of password threat.
According to Troy Hunt, the founder of Have I Been Pwned?, passwords are here to stay—in spite of their security failings. One major reason for this is the comfort and familiarity that passwords offer. But, the weak security front of password authentication cannot be ignored, especially in this age of sophisticated attacks. This is why password strength is more relevant now than ever before.
Verizon's 2020 Data Breach Investigation Report states that 80 percent of data breaches that involved hacking started as simple password attacks. This shows how susceptible passwords are to attack. Before we learn to make strong passwords, let's learn what we've been doing wrong.
Password entropy is a measure of unpredictability of a password. This is a good indicator of password strength. The higher the password entropy, the stronger the password. While setting passwords, our aim should be to maximize this parameter.
