Password Security....should you change it often?
      08/05/16 12:26 AM

From your perspective, I mostly agree with you. My point was that there are
other valid perspectives.

For an extreme case, I worked for a short time (my choice about short) at
place which wrote medical practice management software. One component was
checking prescriptions for insurance and interactions and doctor shopping.

My employer's servers were trusted by the insurance clearing house, a joint
effort of several insurers. In turn, the company had to validate the
requests coming in from medical practices as legitimate before passing them
through.

I worked in a biometrically secured room where there was a Certificate
Authority machine. Those who don't know what I mean, refer to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_key_certificate and
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Certificate_authority

I would generate and install a certificate on a specific customer machine
which had a fixed (not dynamic) IP address. It took the combination of the
IP address and the certificate which had been generated for that specific
machine which validated requests and permitted return data to be received.

In short, this went beyond password security. HIPAA is a powerful motivator
for data security.
