Podcast copyright: Singapore Management University.
 

Most people are aware of the importance of having a secure password.  However, many still tend to pick simple, easy-to-crack passwords, such as their date of birth or home address.  These are not very secure, naturally leaving their computers and data vulnerable.

With major data breaches and leaks becoming more common nowadays, there has been concerns about the efficacy of having text-based passwords. Why are text-based passwords less secure? What then are the alternatives for computer users?

Associate Professor Gao Debin of the SMU School of Information Systems is an expert on malware detection and system security.  In this podcast, Assoc Prof Gao shares his research on password security.
