In the first part of this entry, it was shown how its possible that a password from a normal user would significantly be weaker than that from a complex and randomly generated one.
Note: in the strictest sense, there is no such thing as an uncrackable password. Passwords can be uncrackable only in theory, i.e. the mathematical probability of a password being guessed correctly-- no matter how infinitesimally small the odds are, the possibility of a right guess is always present. Also, passwords are uncrackable only technically-- given enormous resources and time any password can be cracked.
