What are you passionate about?  For me personally, it is passwords.  Take a look at how passwords have progressed over the past 20 years.  Dan Gooden from ArsTechnica has had a number of great postings showing how passwords that we thought were secure, really aren't.


How the Bible and YouTube are fueling the next frontier of password cracking tells how these passwords were found.


All too often we blame the users when a web site loses their passwords.  Instead of placing the blame where it belongs on the web site for:


1. Losing the passwords

2. Having them in a format that someone can tell what they are


You can close with a possible password alternative, like SQRL.  Steve Gibson's website www.grc.com has a lot of good information, Perfect Passwords, Password Haystacking, and Perfect Paper Passwords.    Steve also does a weekly podcast, Security Now!.


Ask yourself why do we have passwords?

Why do they have to be secure?

Why do they have to be changed regularly?

Does requiring the password to have certain things really make it more secure?


This will require you to question everything you have been taught about passwords.


I've been meaning to write up something myself, but just haven't gotten around to it.
