Passwords – some useful links

I’ve been collecting some useful password related links and just wanted to log them / share them for easy reference.

Here are three password strength checking websites, interesting to play with so long as you don’t use real passwords

And here are a couple of websites claiming to check if you might be affected by various compromises, and in particular the Adobe passwords leak

(I say claim as they don’t acknowledge my user id which isn’t an email address but does appear on the Adobe users with an associated password)

Last but definitely not least, the YouTube play list for the talks given at the December 2013 PasswordsCon in Bergen
