The best way to protect passwords may be creating fake ones
Password managers are a great way to supply random, unique passwords to a high number of websites. But most still have an Achilles’ heel: Usually, a single master password unlocks the entire vault.
But a group of researchers has developed a type of password manager that creates decoy password vaults if a wrong master password is supplied.
NoCrack is intended to make it much more time-consuming and difficult for attackers to figure out if they’ve hit pay dirt.
