    The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) "promotes U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life." NIST publishes standards documents that attempt to normalize good practices in a number of fields, including information security. One of these documents is the NIST 800-63B. "Digital Identity Guidelines". While the document states that a memorized secret authenticator, better known as a password, should be at least 8 characters long, how many characters does it say should be permitted? Please answer with a number.

    The NIST 800-63B document also states that users should be able to use "paste" functionality when entering their passwords into login screens. This facilitates the use of ____________ managers, which are widely used...

    The InfoSec News and Alerts Site also has a Quick Info page about good password guidelines. One of the bullet points on this page explains how to pick a good, long, memorable password, or passphrase. What is the first word of the example passphrase on that page?

    The security awareness posters which are posted in each residence hall and in Krannert talk about the fact that you are a target. How many categories of methods a criminal could use your information against you are shown? Please answer with a number.
