Description

Despite their pitfalls, passwords remain ubiquitous. Users are encouraged to make passwords that are easy to remember and hard to guess, but as the number of information systems (IS) accounts per user proliferates, this is easier said than done. We tackle the competing goals of security and memorability, applying design science to create a framework for producing personalized algorithms which users may then use to create passwords that are both secure and memorable.
