There is no unambiguous description of what a strong password is.

When a password is entered in iProva, a number of things are checked. Below are a few examples of weak passwords:

  • Recurring patterns (abcabcabc)
  • Repeating symbols (aaaaaaaa)
  • Frequently used passwords (password)
  • L33t speak (pa55w0rd)
  • Dates

This list is not complete. There are many more examples of weak passwords.

In the past, your password had to be a certain length. This is not the case anymore. A password of 10 characters may be very strong, but another password of 20 characters may be very weak.
