comment Password rules: Should I disallow “leetspeak” dictionary passwords like XKCD's Tr0ub4dor&3
"16 character or longer passphrase (unlimited max)" So, If I put GB of characters in that field, you allow me to post that to server? Interesting...

comment Why do we even use passwords / passphrases next to biometrics?
You can't reproduce fingerprint. You can't even use stolen credentials to gain access (in the same fashion you would with passwords) link

comment Would this idea for a password be secure?
"...if an attacker knows one password they can likely figure out the others." How? How can attacker even know you used some kind of algorithm to forge a password?

comment Why do we even use passwords / passphrases next to biometrics?
Because, there isn't a single (or very few) piece(s) of information about thumbprint stored in DB (or where ever you store data). Forging thumbprint is not really an option (unlike password). Think of it as black and white picture (with none or next to none grey-scale colors) - where was the blue color in the original image? Was there any? Yet, we can assume, each this b&w picture stored in DB is unique.

comment Does adding a non-entropic part to a password makes it less secure?
How is suffix added - by user or by application?

@ThomasPornin - It seems my Q wasn't clear enough. The answer which I'm looking for is actually your second paragraph.
