Recent news stories about large password compromises have refocused our attention on good password practices.  Password management seems to require more time and effort than ever before, but it’s not clear that we really feel any more secure.  Are there good ways to create, use and protect all of our passwords?  In this episode, we take a look at the current state of passwords, changing recommendations on password management, and whether there are some good, simple approaches to dealing with today’s password requirements.
