Here's your password in 21 easy steps

I’m in the process of getting a “digital signature” for communicating with the tax authorities here in Denmark. It’s my fourth attempt, the other times I’ve failed, and the failed to get back to it before the deadline expired. Sigh.

Here are the 21 easy steps to digital identity bliss. Those come after the first 5 or so that you go through to order the pin code in the first place.

It sounds like they might have had an Enterprise Astronaut or two design this thing. Intuition tells me there’s got to be a simpler way. I’m no security expert, but how about just snail mailing people a pin that they’ll use for password? If you lose it, order a new one. Combine it with some good intrusion or abuse detection, and that just might be secure enough?
