By which I mean... hi Brenton! Great to see you being active again :)

It's great you've taken the time to do this, and the benefits are very clear [improved security], but what are the costs?

Whilst you're at it, what is the new file size?

What sort of performance impact is this having over the existing list?

What's the additional memory load, if any?

Three years ago Django introduced the CommonPasswordValidator and included a list of 1,000 passwords considered to be "common". That list was based on leaked passwords and came from xato.net[1].

I'd like to update the list to

a) be from a more reliable / recent source
b) be larger and more in line with the NIST recommendations

Security researcher Troy Hunt has published a massive list of leaked passwords, including frequencies on Have I Been Pwned[2]. The top 20,000 of which are available in a gist from Royce Williams[3], including the frequency, md5 hash and plain text password.

Interestingly there's 27 passwords in the Django list that aren't in the HIBP list. I'd post them here but they're mostly short and not safe for work.

I've created a ticket for the increase in size[4] but wanted to check in and make sure this is something django-developers thinks is valuable.

Cheers,
Brenton
