- Calculating password entropy? 3 answers
I know that the formula for the entropy of a message is: (I believe b can be set to 2)
but when calculating the entropy of a password websites usually only compute log2(p-1), ignoring the first term. Is there a difference in these types of entropy?
Note: The website I am referring to in this instance is http://passwordstrengthcalculator.org/index.php. Thank you for the help.
