Abstract: Dictionary-based attacks pose a persistent threat in the digital realm, persisting as long as there is a need for more emphasis on secure password practices and awareness. These attacks involve automated attempts to guess passwords by leveraging essential yet crucial information until the correct one is discovered. Contemporary password strategies focus on increasing the complexity of brute force and dictionary attacks. This includes utilizing custom dictionaries for filtering specific terms, developing resilient rainbow tables, and enforcing agile and stringent password creation, storage, and security protocols. The current webinar aims to explore elements for security stakeholders to create and manage secure passwords, encompassing practical hashing algorithms for securing and managing rainbow tables. The webinar also delves into the implementation of robust password policies.
