Talk: How to (not) Store Your Password 2016-06-24

There is much dispute on how to securely store passwords. Traditionally there are two schools: Online and Offline password management. Both have strengths and weaknesses when it comes to security as well as accessibility and portability. Both methods have one weakness in common though: they store your password. In this talk I will discuss the various strengths and weaknesses of traditional password managers and present a method that has the main strengths of both online and offline password managers, but allows you to generate secure passwords on-the-fly, never to store them again.
