Cracking RACF Passwords


In this session, Jim will present on the topic of cracking RACF passwords. He will talk about how someone would go about doing this including what tools are out there, how to crack passwords and how long it takes to crack passwords of differing lengths and complexities. Jim will also share his ideas and suggestions on the best way to defend your organisation and yourself against this, with good password practices and tools.
