Password complexity, or strength, is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting guessing and brute force attacks. The ability to crack a password is a function of how many attempts are made to crack the password, how quickly the adversary can make each attempt, and the size of the password space. The longer the minimum length of the password is, the larger the password space.
