Password strategies on the Internet (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka vilka lösenordsstrategier individer använder sig av vid skapandet av användarkonton på internet. Studien bygger på en enkätundersökning där fyra olika målgrupper fick svara på frågor kring deras lösenordsstrategier på internet. Bland annat studerades skillnader mellan individer som är verksamma inom området IT/datateknik och individer som inte är det. Dessutom undersöktes även skillnader mellan äldre individers lösenordsstrategier och andra målgruppers. Generellt visar resultatet att inga större förändringar i lösenordsstrategier skett de senaste tio åren, förutom att användandet av lösenordshanterare har ökat. Strategier som användes av individer verksamma inom IT/datateknik skilde sig från de strategier som användes av individer som inte är verksamma inom ämnet, och det antogs att tekniskt intresse och kompetens har viss betydelse när det kommer till val av lösenordsstrategier. Hos äldre individer sågs en trend av okunskap och bristande intresse, vilket kan förklara bristfälliga lösenordsstrategier.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate password strategies used by individuals creating user accounts on the internet. The study was based on a questionnaire survey, where four different target groups answered questions about their password strategies on the internet. Differences in strategies between individuals active in the field of IT/computer engineering, and individuals not active in the field, were studied. In addition, possible differences between older individuals and other target groups were investigated. Generally, the results show that there have been no major changes in password strategies over time, except that the use of password managers has increased. Strategies used by individuals active in the field of IT/computer engineering differed from those not active in the field, and it was assumed that technical interest and competence are of some importance when it comes to choosing password strategies. Among older individuals, lack of interest and unawareness was observed, leading to inadequate password strategies. The study is written in Swedish only.
