Password Recovery


Password Recovery is the process of recovering passwords from data that has been stored in or transmitted by a computer system. A common approach is to repeatedly try guesses of the password. This is known as a Brute Force approach. 

The purpose of password recovery might be to help a user recover a forgotten password (though installing an entirely new password is less of a security risk, but involves system administration privileges), to gain unauthorized access to a system, or as a preventive measure by system administrators to check for easily crackable passwords.

With the ever increasing use of computers and the Internet, people wishing to protect data are using passwords and data encryption to protect it.  If the password is lost or as an employer, you wish to know what an employee is doing, the password may be recovered to give you access to the information.  Password Recovery methods are advancing at an ever increasing rate, making recovery even more probable.
