ECE's LERSSE Password Meters

Do password meters create stronger passwords? ECE's LERSSE members, in collaboration with Microsoft Research and UC Berkeley wrote Does My Password Go up to Eleven? The Impact of Password Meters on Password Selection. Password meters tell users whether their passwords are "weak" or "strong". In a laboratory experiment, by forcing users to change their current passwords, they found that having the meters did have users selecting stronger passwords. In a follow-up field experiment for unimportant accounts, the authors found that the meters did not change the outcome of the users’ passwords.

Konrad Walus interview in International Innovation

Konrad Walus was recently interviewed by International Innovation Magazine. In the interview Dr. Walus describes some of the groundbreaking research being done by the interdisciplinary team in the Walus Lab.  A focus of the lab is 3D printing and micro printing technology that are employed to build devices incorporating nanomaterials in new ways. Work in the lab develops active electronics, mechanically and chemically sensitive devices and the use of a 3D bio-printer for tissue fabrication.
