As lots of system administrators have been in a situation where they misplaced their root passwords or confused Girlfriend's birthday with it... Well, to some of us at least :) Anyhow, just recently I happen to have got into an argument about whether to change the password on a monthly basis or less frequently. The only pros for changing passwords more frequently is that you will actually change it :), however, the very fact that humans are the weakest links in any security context, the same happens to be a problem here. People tend to use less secured passwords as frequently they are changing them. At one point, after I got back from vacation one of my private servers needed maintenance and I couldn't remember what was the latest root password - I tend not to write them anywhere.
So, I went down to hunt it back by following steps:
NOTE: Do not use your wife's, girlfriend's or boyfriend's birthdays as passwords, it is just making brute force much more effective. Instead, go for encrypted password containers, this way you don't have to memorize all passwords you use and still would be keeping them in secured environment.
