Can science make it too costly for hackers to attempt to steal information?

Jeremiah Blocki, an associate professor of computer science in Purdue’s College of Science, applies his work with passwords and secure systems to stem the ongoing tide of hackers by finding new and better ways to store information as securely as possible. Researchers take several angles to explore password security beyond the logon screen of your favorite website.
