Most typical is three times but it could be however many times you want to use.

Are the users technical users? if so 3.  if the end users are not technical 5-7  Think of it this way with the respect to brute forcing and password attacks the difference between 3 and 7 is nothing.

I don't see any indication that this is a homework question.

In lieu of anything obvious, I always err on the side of assuming the asker is not doing homework.

I am not bad student which doesn;t want to make assignments. I just use this site first time and I try to post some questions which are really frm my home work. But it doesn't matter that I will take blind any of solution which presented me by any of experts. It's jst interesting me to see this questions from practical experience view and may be take some iteresting issue to develop and reaserach in my assignments. Is it so bad?
