The purpose of this study is to analyse the security of Diceware pass-phrases in comparison with various symmetric authenticated encryption schemes against the brute force attack. It proves that the security of these passphrases is deficient and, therefore, its use should end gradually. Additionally, this study offers ways on how Diceware could enhance its security.
