Abstract
Large-scale password data breaches are becoming increasingly commonplace, which has enabled researchers to produce a substantial body of password security research utilising real-world password datasets, which often contain numbers of records in the tens or even hundreds of millions. While much study has been conducted on how password composition policies-sets of rules that a user must abide by when creating a password-influence the distribution of user-chosen passwords on a system, much less research has been done on inferring the password composition policy that a given set of user-chosen passwords was created under. In this paper, we state the problem with the naive approach to this challenge, and suggest a simple approach that produces more reliable results. We also present pol-infer, a tool that implements this approach, and demonstrates its use in inferring password composition policies. © 2019 IEEE.

Abstract
This paper shows by examples how the Theory of Programming can be taught to first-year CS undergraduates. The only prerequisite is their High School acquaintance with algebra, geometry, and propositional calculus. The main purpose of teaching the subject is to support practical programming assignments and projects throughout the degree course. The aims would be to increase the student’s enjoyment of programming, reduce the workload, and increase the prospect of success. © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Abstract
Algorithmic problem solving is a way of approaching and solving problems by using the advances that have been made in the principles of correct-by-construction algorithm design. The approach has been taught at first-year undergraduate level since September 2003 and, since then, a substantial amount of learning materials have been developed. However, the existing materials are distributed in a conventional and static way (e.g. as a textbook and as several documents in PDF format available online), not leveraging the capabilities provided by modern collaborative and open-source platforms. In this paper, we propose the creation of an online, open-source repository of interactive learning materials on algorithmic problem solving. We show how the existing framework Mathigon can be used to support such a repository. By being open and hosted on a platform such as GitHub, the repository enables collaboration and anyone can create and submit new material. Furthermore, by making the material interactive, we hope to encourage engagement with and a better understanding of the materials. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
