@stevefoerster What would be nice would be to include the version with high entropy that humans have been demonstrated to actually be able to remember: diceware style passwords (multiple words, eg like xkcd.com/936/ except you want more like 6-7 words these days)

@cwebber @stevefoerster this chart suggests XKCD is right. Even a 3 word passphrase takes like 10 times as long to crack as a gibberish password of 9 or 10 characters.

@msh @cwebber @stevefoerster That's from brute-forcing characters. Brute-forcing 3 words via an English word dictionary would take considerably less time.
