I # Passwords (merchandise)

product link - category link

Well, I don't know about you but I'm getting tired of hearing about sites who apparently don't know the first thing about keeping passwords secure. So to raise awareness I made this design that says I # Passwords, and the hash symbol has the phrase "WORK FACTOR" all through it to represent a password hashing algorithm rather than a cryptographic hash algorithm (because for passwords you're better off with a work factor slowing things down than with a traditional cryptographic hash that's optimized for speed).
I've also learned my lesson about these shirt printing services so there's both a CafePress version and a Zazzle version.
