Write a brief paper of 200-300 words explaining each of these security recommendations.  Do you agree or disagree with these recommendations? Would you change, add or delete any of these mentioned below?  Add additional criteria as you see necessary about creating good password security. 

An IT Security consultant has made three primary recommendations regarding passwords:

1. Prohibit guessable passwords such as common names, real words, numbers only

· require special characters and a mix of caps, lower case and numbers in passwords

2. Reauthenticate before changing passwords

· user must enter old password before creating new one

3. Make authenticators unforgeable 

· do not allow email or user ID as password

Note- Copying without attribution or the use of spin-bot or other word substitution software will result in a grade of 0. Write in essay format not in bulleted, numbered or other list format.
