    Do you want to try create 1500 unique usernames manually?

    Also if maclicous intent is involved, the perp can just stalk their victim, nab the username and then attack.

    Just use a password generator for the username instead of the password - I can see it now...

    "OK, your username is 44M2oP2@"(,ii2j# and your password is 'dog'."

    Now we're getting into the realms of biometrics; finger prints and retina scans

    RFID tags embedded in their hands.
    If they want to steal each others accounts they'll have to nick a hand too :twisted:

    No, we'll have Food Tech moan at us for people stealing their carving knives.

    I've considered tokens of some kind (usb stick w/ certficate or signed key) but we don't allow USB drives, RSA hardware gets expensive _fast_ and biometric solutions are a sensitive issue and don't get reliable until you start spending $big_number.

    Has anyone deployed a large scale authentication setup using iButtons? (Dallas semiconductor) I have one for a server room at $moonlighting_work. They're cheap (quid a go) and indestructable, but I've never really deployed it beyond a couple of solenoid locks at home.

    Re: Stop kids locking each others accounts

    At my old school we used a chip system that also tied in with a cashless dinner card system, the cards had the students picture and name on, we could then use this info when they wanted password changes. One thing we also did re password changes was to enable key trusted staff members the rights to change passwords in the students domain, this then became much easier for staff to manage as they didn't have to send pupils to us and loose them for the lesson! (of couse some still did!) If I can remember what the system was called i'll update the post!!
