Forgot your password?

Comment Re:Surely this is expected (Score 1) 49

An application specific password is meant to be given to the application once and then never typed again, heavily reducing the chance of it being compromised.

If it's kept in persistent storage by the application, that actually increases the chance of it being compromised. Rather than logging keystrokes or peeking at RAM or man-in-the-middling the application in some way, you can just read a file.

That's all it is, another lane.

With vehicles moving at 300 km/h on it, you're going to need a bit more segregation than a painted line, if only to keep other traffic from being sucked into the wake of the "super bus."
