Passwords, ad infinitum...



  • An idea raised by a co-worker just now:



    Him: "You know the passwords to access the database? Why don't we put them behind a firewall, using a secure webservice to access them. They'd be stored encrypted until they're needed."



    Me: "So, we'd need a password to access the passwords?"



    Him: "Yeah, but you'd store that password in the database!"



    Me: "So, you'd need a password to access the database that contains the password to get to the other passwords.... How are you storing that password?"



    Him: "Oh, f#@* off!"

    I don't think you quite get what the OP was talking about.

    I will not be showing him this thread as I can predict his reply...... :-)


    Future Him: "Is there an API for that?"


    Future Me: "Yeah, probably, but it'll need a password securely stored in a database..."

    I think I do :) Point is, it already exists, and yes, you do need to remember the password for it :P

  • My anus has a strong password, though I guess you can bruteforce it with plenty of parallel dicks.
