Military Passwords

Recommended Posts

During WWII, in the Pacific, if you asked the password being the name of a certain city in Pennsylvania where the Liberty Bell is kept, and the reply was, "Phiriderphia", SHOOT!  :o

Military Intelligence Service, translating documents, interviewing prisoners. They had to go to school to learn the Japanese words used in the military.

And it would have to have 12 characters, capitals and lower case as well...:angry:

 

I worked for an agency that required military type passwords and you had to change them every month. Annoying.

Security experts now recommend something in the 30s.

 

i have maybe 50 that I have not written down and another 50 that I keep written down.  And nothing over 16 characters.

Funny how electronics devices keep getting smaller, yet the passwords you need just to access them keep getting bigger... :huh:

when I was teaching 5th grade "they" (a subcommittee of 'them') required the same thing to get to our grade books;

so I went with

password09

password10

password11  i.e. password + numerical number of month (can you have a non-numerical number?   maybe   x + 4 = -6 )

 

"they" were happy and I could record my grades

When I served on the Nuclear bases back in the 60's, the passwords were a number combination.

If the password was IX and the guard gave out IV the intruder had to respond with V.  :ph34r:

MIS = Military Intelligence Service.  How incredibly obvious.  Yet, I still, somehow, managed to miss it.  I guess I can skip sending them my resume.  :D

Move along, nothing to see here.
