Learn About creating good password security.

An IT Security consultant has made three primary recommendations regarding passwords:

Prohibit guessable passwords

such as common names, real words, numbers only

require special characters and a mix of caps, lower case and numbers in passwords

Reauthenticate before changing passwords

user must enter old pw before creating new one

Make authenticators unforgeable 

do not allow email or user ID as password

Using WORD, write a brief paper  explaining each of these security recommendations. 

 Do you agree or disagree with these recommendations. Would you change, add or delete any of these?  Add additional criteria as you see necesarry.
