Memorable IPv6 Addresses

Back in Nov 2009, I foresaw that IPv6 addresses would become a menace to memorise. So I had a crack at improving memorability of such addresses, See http://blog.jgc.org/2011/07/pronounceable-ipv6-addresses-wpa2-psk.html?m=1. The basic idea is that sounds which make up words or resemble words are much easier to remember than individual digits. I was actually thinking about this idea last night, how it could be applied to remembering strong passwords.

This morning I got an email from a collegue who pointed out this: http://www.halfbakery.com/idea/IPv6_20Worded_20Addresses#1260513928. I don’t believe the scheme used here is as memorable as mine, but it sounds like other people are having similar ideas.

Back to my thoughts last night on more memorable passwords. We know we’re supposed to use Upper and Lower case, special symbols etc. But even then you’re not using the full 64bit capacity of the full 8 character recommended string. To use my scheme to memorise more secure passwords, you would simply use my tool.

I made a video 🙂
