Final Year Project

This research project spreads across the fields of information security in password based authentication, human cognition and memorability and aims address the tradeoff between password strength and memorability, which is where passwords that are memorable for users are more vulnerable and secure passwords are difficult to remember resulting in users reusing, forgetting or writing down passwords jeopardizing security.
The research uses established and accepted memorability and security models to build a password generating application that supports both password generation and memorability testing which will help users create and use personalized, strong and memorable passwords.
