What Is Brute Force?

Brute Force definition and explanation.

Brute Force is a type of cryptographic attack which involves exhaustive search. Brute force employs techniques in which a password is guessed based on possible combinations of the required password until the correct password is discovered. The potential password space plays a vital role in discovering the right password. I.e., the longer the password with more types of characters (numbers, symbols, capital case letters, etc.), the more difficult it becomes to crack it. However, if the password is weak, it merely takes seconds to discover it.

70% of all corporate passwords are easily crackable.
