registering yourself as a supplier for one of the big (like in “HUGE”) automobile companies is fun: processes are mostly streamlined, response time is fairly low and security is impeccable — isn’t it?
well, as you can see in the image attached, sometimes there’s a catch to that: the integration of legacy systems seems to hinder modern (or at least contemporary) security concepts. In this case it’s the limitation to lower-case letters in the password!! moreover, in this case, the limitation applies to the password field only! the username can be a happy mixture of upper and lower case letters!
for zarquon’s sake: if we don’t get a chance to use certificate or two-factor based authentication, let us at least have a decent password!
for all of you out there that are involved in the “password complexity vs. length” discussion, let me add that here they allow for fairly short passwords as well…
razor blades on a plane? this seems so far away: just another proof for how fast our mind adapts to something new.
