  • Why you shouldn't be using passwords of any kind on your Windows networks: So here's the deal - I don't want you to use passwords, I want you to use pass-PHRASES. This would be great if you only had to log in once to access everything. Most people don't live in single-sign-on nirvana however. For example, the start of my work day I log in for network (1), internet access (2) and email/groupware client (3). Then if I have to access a secondary groupware system I'm authenticating again (4), one (5) or both of our portals (6), shell (7), FTP (8) and restricted web tools (9+)... and that's just the most common stuff. I'd hate to be banging away at a pass phrase for every one of those.
