Let's be honest: Everyone hates passwords.
Users hate remembering them, IT hates resetting them, and IT security hates that staffers use the same passwords for the corporate network that they use for Facebook. And passwords are easy to crack -- modern, pre-generated hash tables can crack most passwords up to 10 characters long in minutes.

So what can we do about it?
