Summary

Let's create our own password system which can be used anywhere for all of the passwords we will ever need. We want to make them easy to formulate yet be secure enough.

The grid system that you finally choose can easily be recreated any time you like on a piece of paper. You will need to take that piece of paper everywhere you go but you can keep it in your wallet, purse etc. Even if it is exposed to others it won't matter because they won't know exactly how you are using it: you will incorporate your own password-design method with that information to create the final passwords. The page will be used like an ultra-thin computer, combined with the giant one in your head.

We will learn that many different variables need to be considered and satisfied for that one system to work in all situations. Upon finalizing the choices of your system that will be the one that you will use for the rest of your life.

How easy are these systems to create? The answer is surprisingly easy but obviously impossible if you don't know how.

We will also need to provide human-meaning names to aid in the usage of grid designs. That way you will have less to remember. So although we can easily forget things (which is disastrous in password-creation systems) we can also take advantage of the fact that we can remember many things (including people) easily. We can make use of our strengths and side-step our failings. Complicated ideas always require the correct aids before they can be easily used.

It has often been said that the weakest part of a security system is the password. And what about those security disasters, forever exposed in the news media, such as when hackers broke into a system and revealed everyone's passwords to expose their weaknesses?

How good are the hackers' passwords?

In deciding the choices for your system you will be playing about like a kid and having fun with simple mathematics.

Using many random 20-character passwords will no longer be Ahassle%4=w-

What is a password? A personal signature, which everyone already knows?

It's one of the shortest books you'll ever read. It doesn't need to be long. It's cryptography made easy for ordinary people since cryptography is normally a complicated subject.

Summing up in one phrase: no more insecure feelings about your passwords from now on.

(This book is intended for e-reader/tablet screen sizes and larger.

Can you comfortably do basic maths without using a calculator? If so then this book is not for you.

The book is more of a tool/method than a book. Once the method has been learnt there is no need to read the book again like it is with an ordinary book. Think of it as a piece of computer software.)

(Readers, please note that it's a difficult book to set a sample rate for because it's so short and because it's not an ordinary book. I am in the process of contacting people that readers already trust like popular novelists and others. They will be given copies so that people will be able to see their reviews of it. These links will be shown on my author page at the Smashwords dotcom ebook store.)
