One of my friends asked to write at least for once in English to this blog, so here you go:
As we know, nowadays there is a large number of passwords one has to remember. Often there is also a possibility to get your password somehow if you have forgotten it. In Gmail, for example, one is able to choose a security question.
However, passwords are not an invention of the web-era. They have been used – and are still used – by different kind of brotherhoods, secret clubs and rebels. What happens if one looses ones secret password to the country house full of masked men – or even worse – forgets it under the pressure when ones credibility is being questioned by these men. Just think about the scenes in “Eyes wide shut”.
A phone call based service is needed to ensure this kind of mistakes won’t happen. When the secret brotherhood agrees on the password, the password is also sent to the phone service provider with the library card numbers or mom’s middle names of the members of the brotherhood.
