Looking for research on automated, temporary passwords for new users

Hey all, have any of you had successful experiences with automated, temporary passwords being generated during the user sign up process?

I didn't read anything about this in  Luke Wroblewski's work and am looking for some insight. Our demographic is composed of many people in their 50's and 60's. I am looking to increase the ease of the signup process.

Password Strength Requirements

Does anyone have any evidence, anecdotal or formal, about how
different password strength requirements impact the usability of a
web-based application?

There's a spectrum of different strength requirements. I've seen
sites that don't have any requirements, other than the password
exists.

how to treat passwords when creating a new user

Hi all,

I'm working on a project where one user creates the accounts for several other
users (typically one manager to 4 to 20 operators). It's an equipment (not
office environment, not web) and the operators may have only a numeric keypad.

We've seen 3 options so far:

1. When the manager creates an account, he also creates a password for that
user. It's up to the manager/operator relationship to make that the real
password or to require the operator to change it (the system won't care about it).

2.

Mozilla Firefox - showing passwords

Hi, all

There was something on my mind for a whiIe and now I decided to ask: Has
anyone any ideea what in the world determined the makers of Firefox to
display all stored passwords on a user's computer just at 3-4 clicks away?
To me, it makes the feature of storing passwords almost useless.
I like to have things as simple as possible, so I generally choose to stay
'logged in' and have passwords remember and things like that.

handling scenarios for our oh-so-beloved use case, "user enters
incorrect password"?

Yours curiously,

My bank has just decided to implement a new security measure -
entering passwords via an on screen keyboard.

This is to get around key loggers and trojans.

Forgotten Passwords

I've seen sites using both the "e-mail temporary password" and
"answer security question(s)" methods for resetting passwords. Does
anyone have any data on usability (or security) issues with either
one, or other (better) methods for dealing with forgotten password
problems?

Thanks,

Chris
