How To Reset Root Password On CentOS 7 | Unixmen
I dunno what the '.autorelabel' SELinux thing is all about, but it DEFinitely seems to be required.

<code>
1. boot into single user mode
- ∆ kernel command line from 'ro' to 'rw init=/sysroot/bin/sh'
2. chroot /sysroot
3. chroot /sysroot
4. touch /.autorelabel # totally 100% required!
5. exit # probably not necessary, just reboot</code>

FSU technology cracks, fixes passwords - Florida State University News
Currently, the most common password generation method is based on a set of rules. For example, existing technology advises users to create passwords with a minimum of eight characters and contain a capital letter and/or special symbol.

This method may seem effective; however, these rules can make passwords difficult to remember.

“Two components to a strong password are to make it easy to remember and hard to crack,” Aggarwal said. “If our system can successfully crack a password, it will propose a password similar to the one submitted but with slight format variations, making it easier to remember.”

Help - Eclipse Platform
In computing, 56-bit encryption refers to a key size of fifty-six bits, or seven bytes, for symmetric encryption. While stronger than 40-bit encryption, this still represents a relatively low level of security in the context of a brute force attack.
