My password algorithm
Authored by: Tonex on Sep 24, '04 03:27:43AM

Ok I'm no cyptologist, but it would seem to me that if your password was 'password' or some other common word, then your method would not hide the password from someone who was trying to get in to your machine.

Wouldn't a password cracking program be able to spot your trick quite easily? You're not actually randomising anything so the pattern of your word would still be recognisable, all the program would have to do is figure out where you had shifted your fingers to.
