Managing passwords is a significant problem for most people in the modern world.
Passwords are a critical part of information and network security. Passwords serve as primary
authentication method to protect user accounts but a poorly chosen password, if compromised,
could put the entire network at risk. Many users do not understand why good passwords and
password management are important for information systems. “We’re secure! We use
passwords!” How many of us have heard this claim? Or even “We’re secure! We have a
password policy!” Using a password or having a password policy in today’s world of
computing is not enough. Understanding and practicing the policy is important to keep
In this project research, the author has conducted a survey to check password habits for user
accounts on 200 academy staffs, non-academy and students within Kampala International
University (Kampala campus). This survey allowed the author to understand password habits
of users according to sensitive of their account, also reveals some critical issues associated with
password choice. As a result, data on password strength, the types and lengths of passwords
chosen, and how they vary by site or sensitivity of account has been considered.
Furthermore, recommendations are given based on different aspects of users` requirements.
Hopefully, the result of this research project will be valuable to users who want to use password
policy for securing user accounts.
