1-Wikipedia (Consult October 24th) Password
A password is a secret word or string of characters that is used for authentication, to prove identity or gain access to a resource (example: an access code is a type of password). The password should be kept secret from those not allowed access.
The use of passwords is known to be ancient. Sentries would challenge those wishing to enter an area or approaching it to supply a password or watchword. Sentries would only allow a person or group to pass if they knew the password. In modern times, user names and passwords are commonly used by people during a log in process that controls access to protected computer operating systems, mobile phones, cable TV decoders, automated teller machines (ATMs)

In this day of increased concerns over security, especially electronic security and new laws like HIPAA, using "strong passwords" is a must. "Strong passwords" are passwords that are difficult to break. Doing so helps to protect your own data from theft, as well as the data of your clients if you are in a health-care related field. (Consult October) 5 Steps to a Good Password
Before we begin, we must be clear on one major expectation: there is no such thing as a perfect password. A committed hacker can crack any password, given enough time and the right "dictionary" or "brute force" tools. But just like breaking into a car, if the protection is strong enough, the hacker will become discouraged and commonly give up before the protection fails.
