How Long Would Your Password Take To Crack?

This was an interesting posting on another blog. There is a free website to give you a rough estimate on how long it would take for your password to be discovered. How accurate is this? Not sure but it is entertaining if nothing else. Here is my suggestion – just to be a little paranoid – I would hate to see this site capture passwords and associate them with your IP number to try it this way – don’t enter your current password or passwords you use on the machine used to access this site – you can put in a couple passwords you previously used, some you thought of using and if you are on a home system, try your work password (and vice versa).

The sample passwords I’ve run through the web site offer an interesting insight into how complex they should be.
