NewsHoneywords: Making Password-Cracking Detectable [PDF] Pin

We suggest a simple method for improving the security of hashed passwords: the maintenance of additional honeywords (false passwords) associated with each user's account. An adversary who steals a file of hashed passwords and inverts the hash function cannot tell if he has found the password or a honeyword. The attempted use of a honeyword for login sets off an alarm. An auxiliary server (the honeychecker) can distinguish the user password from honeywords for the login routine, and will set off an alarm if a honeyword is submitted.
Passwords are a notoriously weak authentication method. Fake passwords are better?
