What are Dictionary Attacks?

Dictionary attacks are in addition to brute force attacks. These include password cracking tools that have the ability to test a catalogue of passwords. This is known as a dictionary attack, since the file that is used may actually be a catalogue of dictionary words. Passwords with dictionary words are considered weak since they can be cracked during a dictionary attack. Apps and systems that allow dictionary words as passwords are sometimes characterized as weak authentication.
