Thanks for the URLs, but they didn't work. Do you need to be registered with
anything to get to them?

I prefer pass phrases for one reason, support. Implementing complex
passwords increased our support calls. Pass phrases tend to be easier to
remember and generate fewer support calls. There was recently a 3 part
"Great Debates" article on Technet were  Jesper M. Johansson (Ph.D., ISSAP,
CISSP Security Program Manager Microsoft
Corporation) went into great depth on the topic.
Here are the links.

Hi,

What's the consensus on this list on easy-to-remember long passphrases vs
short, but complex passwords?

There was a lot of talk about this on the last TechEd Europe, but AFAICT,
there wasn't ever a consensus, not the keynotes I was on at least.

BW,

Sorin
