    Mmm. Interesting infographic (and worth posting); my views on it are mixed. In no particular order:
    * passwd re-use is (and is likely to remain) a big problem, at least until passwd management software becomes standardised and built-into operating systems.
    * the Java Ring was done a decade ago, and it didn’t turn out well; I don’t see how repeating the exercise would give different results, this time round.
    * it’s great to see 2FA finally going mainstream, although I have different views on the various different mechanisms.
    * passwds remain the only way to sensibly alert on duress covertly (and in a mobile world, this will only get more important); therefore they’ll probably stick around as a component of “nFA” for some time to come.
    * I’m amazed that weak passwds appear to still be so prevalent.
