Designing an Innovative Password Strength and Validation Tool
Numerous statistical studies have shown that compromised passwords lead to 81% of malicious breaches! The field of cybersecurity is growing rapidly in both popularity and usability. Within the last 5 years, there have been multiple innovations of password strength tools. However, they all lack a common factor of including a strong and reliable password validator. Little innovation has been made to combine these two aspects of safety and security into one more efficient and diverse tool. A password breach is a significant issue because users are left at risk of identity theft, allowing their information to be used against them, and are placed in a very vulnerable position. This project aims to categorize the strength of passwords with the intent of creating a more secure password to ensure safe cybersecurity.
