The Paradox of password rules

14 Feb 2014

Posted by Simon Persin

Many organisations can expect to see some sort of findings on their audit reports pertaining to their system password rules and settings. Examples of these include the number of lowercase, uppercase, numerical or special characters required in passwords in combination with not being able to reuse passwords which have already been used. It is a widely held belief that the more restrictions and conditions that are placed upon passwords, the more secure your systems is. I believe that this is actually a paradox. In my experience, more complicated password conditions actually lead to a proliferation of simplistic passwords which can be more easily guessed or cracked. This actually reduces the security of your system rather than enhance it. It is also much more likely that users will write down their passwords in an unencrypted document on their PCs or potentially on a notepad or post it note nearby as a way of remembering the complicated passwords.
