Passwords (Follow-Up)

Post  Breakthrough on 2/10/2013, 1:41 am

Okay.. so most of you have seemed to vote in this poll.. if you haven't, you can go ahead and do it now. (goo.gl/tNQ0UY)

So basically.. I know this is kinda random.. but if you ever meet me in real life.. you'll probably find out that I can be really random sometimes. But.. I just thought this was really cool, and might make keeping passwords in your brain alot easier.

First of all, if you are like CCP.. you might have a "master password" and other passwords for less used sites.. and this tool is great for remembering your passwords for almost any site. (https://lastpass.com/)

Even if you don't do anything with your passwords, like I did, after reading this, even that browser extension could be a life saving tool you've learned about from this.

Anyway.. so the whole idea to remembering, and keeping passwords "Hack-free" is something called SALT + HASH.

The "SALT" is a phrase or set of words that you know, that you are familiar with, or just something easy to remember. So for an example, the SALT will be:
Donutshop (notice the capital D)

Now the HASH is a set of numbers from 1-5, and can be a set of 3,4,5 ect. numbers. 4 numbers is probably the minimum. For example, the HASH will be:
1241

Now all you have to remember to know your password is "Donutshop" and "1241". Let me explain.

Say you are logging into twitter, (https://twitter.com/) a password you can now use follows:
"Donutshoptwtt"

All I did was take the SALT and add the HASH to it. The HASH is the corresponding letters in the URL (after www) to the numbers in the HASH.
T-W-T-T
1-2-4-1

Now, most hackers use a script if they get your password, that runs your password through other sites, but since the 4 letters at the end change, if you loose one site's security, your other sites are safe.. unless the hacker decides to look into your password and notices the pattern.

The only place I've found where this doesn't work was on, (http://www.newegg.com/) as the password requires a number in it, and all I did was add a number to the end. (1-9)

As I said, I'm random.

This is completely off-topic and irrelevant, but instead of using the goo.gl link shortener, there's a clubpeng.in one that I use which is pretty cool, since it's relevant for the forums - it's done by a site called Club Penguin Code; you might want to Google it. Well, I find it pretty useful, anyway.



Thanks for telling the community about 'LastPass' - it sounds like a cool service, but right now I just use Evernote to write down my passwords in noteform. Call me old-fashioned, but I like it. Razz

The SALT + HASH idea is simply fascinating - I'll have to try it sometime, although it does sound suspiciously like a mathematical formula. Razz

Who told you about it, anyway? It's a very good idea! In fact, it's so good that I'm stickying it for usefulness to the community. Smile

Keep up the amazing posting work,

My technology teacher told me about it, and I thought it was cool, so I decided to post it.

Technology teacher, eh? That's interesting. Technology as in Design and Technology (the art subject) or IT? Probably the latter - I've never heard of a DT teacher talking about passwords. Razz

Class is called "Exploring Technology", its just a general class introducing many ideas about technology, and the internet. I'm only taking it since its a requirement to have a semester so I can take Graphics Design 1 this January. Hes a cool teacher though.

Graphics Design, eh? We don't do much of that as a lesson in the UK. You should make some threads in the Graphics section - there are lots of good graphics designers here who might be able to give you some tips. Smile

I've had my share of Graphic designing in the past. I just want to have a class that interests me.. unlike the other nonsense you have to be in (i.e. ENGLISH.. -.-). It'll be good.
