Use one for 'open' type systems,

I use a different one for each system where my password is transmitted in plaintext unless I consider the account to be a throw-away account.

another for 'secure' systems and another for 'very important' systems.

I use several different ones depending on the level of security and my trust of the system. I never reuse passwords for web sites (even secure ones) on shell accounts, for instance. In fact, I generally don't reuse web site passwords at all because I have no idea how they are stored on the other end. I don't mix root passwords with user account passwords. I never share passwords between work accounts and personal accounts. I draw yet another line between machines I own and machines I don't.

All in all, I've got an obscene number of passwords. The most important 30 or so I have memorized. Still, I keep a list, encrypted with a 2048 bit key, on my PDA. I try to choose good, very hard to crack, passwords for everything important and so I rarely change them (except at work where regularly changing some passwords is a requirement.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
