Create lengthy password using cryptographics hash software

If you can remember only easy to remember password then this method can help creating a strong password

For this you will require VSCryptoHash  software. Download and install it.

What you need to remember

  1. An easy password that you can remember
  2. The type of hash used : SHA-3 (512-bit)

 

DEMO

Here i have used easy to remember password : tomahawkmissile

Hash type :  SHA-3 (512-bit)

  • Select SHA-3 (512-bit) as hash type.
  • Enter the easy password in Input data as text
  • Click “calculate hash”
  • As you can see below a lengthy  “HEX Hash value (SHA3 (512)) ” has been calculated

 

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH_02-05-2015_00-36-38

Now you can use this lengthy hash value as password instead of easy password “tomahawkmissle”

Lengthy password   6BC4D708E041136BE68766FDA7A8272193BBA11394AD70693A06C7CB9D327E6BD495EEE6E6B166BAF30F1EAF5C046FBB5053B26CD4FF54EA2807A22D8C020C87

this 128 character long password. So anyone trying to crash this lengthy password will fail.

 

2)  Use other hash algorithm

Instead of SHA 3 (512-bit)  you can use other hash algorithm also.

 

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH MORE ALGO_04-05-2015_19-02-41

 

  • Depending on the hash algorithm you use, the output HEX hash value size will change.

 

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH MORE ALGO_04-05-2015_19-02-53

 

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH MORE ALGO_04-05-2015_19-03-03

 

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH MORE ALGO_04-05-2015_19-03-12

 

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH MORE ALGO_04-05-2015_19-03-21

 

3)  Creating lengthy password using iterating the hash

What you need to remember

  • An easy password that you can remember
  • The type of hash used : SHA-3 (512-bit)
  • The number of times you iterated

 

Demo

  • Easy to remember password : tomahawkmissle
  • Hash type :  SHA-3 (512-bit)
  • The number of times to iterate  :  4

 

Iteration number 1

  • Set Input data as text : tomahawkmissle
  • Set hash type : SHA-3 (512-bit)
  • Click “calculate hash” to create a hash value
  • Click “copy hash value” next to the HEX hash value to copy the password in clipboard

Lenghty password generated  :  6BC4D708E041136BE68766FDA7A8272193BBA11394AD70693A06C7CB9D327E6BD495EEE6E6B166BAF30F1EAF5C046FBB5053B26CD4FF54EA2807A22D8C020C87

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH_02-05-2015_00-36-38

 

Iteration no. 2

  • Use the previously generated HEX hash value as “input data as text”
  • Click “Clear entered data” to clear all the data
  • Paste the copied previous HEX value in the “input data as text”
  • Click “calculate hash” to generate fourth Hex Hash Value
  • Click “copy hash value” next to the HEX hash value to copy the password in clipboard

Lenghty password generated  :  646A3BC18DA8A73B8461F52138AFC01C3F8F7300F14AC0A9273C1648113AF5807143EDA8E42C9FE870090F6B2964D6C0BEF1F9D3A56082B6DA5BC06473BC5A5D

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH_02-05-2015_00-36-47

 

Iteration no. 3

  • Use the previously generated HEX hash value as “input data as text”
  • Click “Clear entered data” to clear all the data
  • Paste the copied previous HEX value in the “input data as text”
  • Click “calculate hash” to generate fourth Hex Hash Value
  • Click “copy hash value” next to the HEX hash value to copy the password in clipboard

Lenghty password generated  :    C8D0733DB68928E7EC22B2AD5298CAE27ED3FF924A4B4D4FD78554BEDE8B70CCC1392E2224408AFC4D5B5AF935584CE875F95E5B0D1A5990803C2A82A5AE54F2

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH_02-05-2015_00-41-02

 

Iteration no. 4

  • Use the previously generated HEX hash value as “input data as text”
  • Click “Clear entered data” to clear all the data
  • Paste the copied previous HEX value in the “input data as text”
  • Click “calculate hash” to generate fourth Hex Hash Value
  • Click “copy hash value” next to the HEX hash value to copy the password in clipboard

Lenghty password generated  :  571AEE3F20C70360FB3CDB2A226D78ED9EC02E314187EC5E733CD15E77C92B947BF53E46E38B200589D2C941705A5FFF573EFFC53A9258A91B2B8A625CA4FFC9

CREATE A STRONG PASWORD USING CRYPTOHASH_02-05-2015_00-37-02

Now that four iterations are over, you can use the fourth HEX hash value as lengthy generated password which is 571AEE3F20C70360FB3CDB2A226D78ED9EC02E314187EC5E733CD15E77C92B947BF53E46E38B200589D2C941705A5FFF573EFFC53A9258A91B2B8A625CA4FFC9

 

 4) You can use tricks to make it even more difficult to for someone to guess the password

You may use various tricks. But just don’t forget what trick you have used or else you won’t be able to recover the lengthy password.

Use may use only part of the lengthy password

  • Example : You may use only “AE6AD23F446310D777C25300EF14BF2C7939F2505B63A4E46ED98CF498F513E274EA99E48632DB” as password instead of whole HEX hash value by cutting out “CAFA0CE29D7E5DDACAB1ED2A6A732778EED71C14CE4CD9E301” from it.

You may combine two or more algorithm

You may two or more hash algorithm to create a final lengthy password.

Do not forget the order in which you used the has algorithm

Example :  I am using two hash algorithm

  1. WHIRLPOOL
  2. SHA 3(512-bit)
  • First WHIRLPOOL (512-bit) has been used

  • Second SHA-3 (512-bit) is used
  • use the previously calculated HEX hash value as “input data as text”
  • Finally calculated HEX hash value to be used a lengthy password :    4AA94A7927B24A6D0EA0A96903E0FF8C4190A6FBE3B51965A213CEE1FC92333CD696AB3D0BF97B974F1BC17CA18170AE12EF08E6AA90D92BD8E8720A1A46F713
