My very first question and I am happy to see that the algorithm did not come close enough.
My question is about the strength of a particular string to be used as a password. Is the length and mix of characters (upper and lower case letters, numbers, and other special characters) the only measures of the strength of the password that we have to work with?
Is there anything else that we can add to the mix to make strong passwords? What I am thinking about is control characters like the when we used to send a form feed to a printer back in the days. Could we use these kind of key combinations to add to passwords?
Thanks for any help.
