Passwords are so old fashioned - and they present the most easily and
frequently exploited weakness in security systems.  We do have solutions...

Randomly generated pass phrases:


Most people will only need three or four pass phrases, including the one
that decrypts / unlocks one's portable database of unique. 'randomly'
generated, impossible to memorize, effectively brute-force-proof


Lose your database file, lose access to everything?  Not likely - if you
scatter copies of the database "everywhere", and update the copies when
you add or change any credentials.

Needs a "password education" or better, "password eradication" day.
