attached mail follows:
all existing systems make sure that the computer has the control over
the authenication process,
let me take this a bit bit further.
lets say the user says to the website that he registers or signs up for
user:"i want you to ask me ( put your no here) questions and answers for
( put ur no here) times ."
website " ok will do "
that means that the process instead of giving it 1 or 2 data it makes it
more and more complex.
and to compensate for resetting the password i also have another
solution ( a idea ) called login less browsing.
there are 2 versions of login less browsing
1 - the software
2- the protocol or system that powers the net
for reasons best left to me
i would rather not discuss about those 2 here until i develop them
some security companies would be wracking thier brains for a solution to
resetting the password.
its so easy i wont reveal it ,
let someone find it before me and i will agree that he /she is a real
