Several employee accounts appear to have been cracked by an attacker. Which of the following should the
security administrator implement to mitigate password cracking attacks? (Choose two.)
Increase password complexity
Deploy an IDS to capture suspicious logins
Implement password history
Implement monitoring of logins
Implement password expiration
Increase password length
The more difficult a password is the more difficult it is to be cracked by an attacker. By increasing the password
complexity, you make it more difficult.
Passwords that are too short can easily be cracked. The more characters used in a password, combined with
the increased complexity will mitigate password cracking attacks.
