Protecting Passwords in a Post-Quantum Computing Era with Military-Grade Crypto

This presentation is about how to create and store passwords in a secure way using military-grade cryptography so that even in the hands of your worst enemies they can't be cracked!
It will look at will passwords from a digital forensics point-of-view to showthe audience what needs to be done, on the back-end, to secure them properly.
At least four live password attack vectors demonstrations will be demonstrated live along with a way on how to properly defend against those attacks.
