Password Recovery Speeds

This document shows the approximate amount of time required for a computer or a cluster of computers to guess various passwords. The figures shown are approximate and are the maximum time required to guess each password using a simple brute force ‘key-search’ attack, it may (and probably will) be possible to guess correctly without trying all the combinations shown using other methods of attack or by having a ‘lucky guess’.”

My default Web site login passwords could be cracked in aproximately 163 days. For my home network, I’m using 63-character length passwords our of a 96 character set. (Those aren’t even in the chart.) .How good are yours?
