In this project, we aim to test how public appearance of a person affects his/her password selection. To do so, a software tool will be developed. This tool will make a search (through social media sites or in general the Internet) about a person and will generate a list of candidate passwords. Of course, this list is just candidates. To check the correctness, another tool will be developed and integrated. The second tool will test the candidate passwords accross publicly available hacked databases (via databases.today or other websites that publish leaked password files).
High-level programming is needed in this project. Standard sophomore Computer Science/Engineering level may not be sufficient.
