Sysdig Monitor single sign-on now available

Check this out. What do you see?

I see a bat. Now check out this next one.

Aaarg, two seahorses me thinks matey!

And this must be Yogi Bear! You probably see something different. Some young folks at Carnegie Mellon University decided to use this property of psychology, unique to an individual, to create easy to remember complex passwords.

Whaaa you say?

Well, lets say I come up with an algorithm in my head to use certain characters from the words that popped in my head when I saw each of the above inkblots to form a password. Say, I use the first and last characters. The result would be “bttsyr”. Seems complex enough, no? Add a couple of more inkblots to your list and you can get a longer complex password.

Why, you say?

Yeah, seems a bit much doesn’t it? Sounded like a cool idea back in 2007, but over the years other researchers found plenty of holes using this concept. So for good reason, hopefully, no one is actually doing this to create their passwords.
