But while there is a lot of talk about strong passwords, I have not heard a really usable way of creating them. And by usable, I mean one that typical computer users will actually use consistently. Of course, this is leading to an algorithm I thought of recently.
First, choose three words. How they are chosen doesn't really matter, as long as they are not ridiculously obvious. I think it would be OK to use a standard theme. As an example, while I have no interest in golf, my uncle loves it. So that will be the theme, and for my first password, I will pick:
Next choose another letter position, that is not the same as the previous one. This gets capitalized (while all the others are lower case). For the example, it will be the last letter.
So now create the password:
