Bauer, Christin, and Cranor’s password research receives high acclaim

A recent study, supervised by ECE/CyLab's Lujo Bauer and Nicolas Christin, and EPP/CyLab's Lorrie Cranor, has received honorable mention at ACM CHI 2016, the top conference for Human-Computer Interaction. In addition, their research, which shows that while people may have a good idea about how to create strong passwords, they do not always choose to do so, has been covered in Nature, Motherboard, and HelpNetSecurity.
