Excerpt of article text...

This month we are going to discuss an issue many of us have. Has my password or email address been Pwned? I know you are asking yourself "What on earth do I mean by Pwned?"

Pwned means your data has ended up on one of the many username/password dumps that the hackers keep passing out. These days it seems like these dumps are in the news almost weekly. And it is going to get worse before it gets better.

I had a client who wanted to make sure that their staff was using secure passwords. That included ensuring their passwords were not out in the wild. So they asked me to add to their application a check on each potential new password before accepting it.

There were already several checks in their application on the password including length, character types, capitalization, etc. The final check was to make sure it wasn't a pwned password. This check is where XoHIBP comes in. In agreement with them, I am able to release the XoHIBP code to the public (as long they aren't mentioned).
