comment A secret in a URL
Although you have a good argument. I actually disagree. URL's are logged and often with the query. That means API keys will be stored somewhere in a text file reachable by the sys admins. One can argue that the content can also be logged. That is true, but, by default it's not so common.

comment What would be a good set of criteria to consider a password safe?
@Begueradj I agree that the question is very similar. For a moment I thought it was the same. But as far as I can tell the question is about how they "yahoo"measure their password security and mine is more generic.

That's a very nice aproach since you measure the randomness of a password. But that is only possible if the generation is also random. That's not the case when a user chooses. Therefore dictionary attacks.

comment Remote PC shutdown security implications
That's true, but in other hand the code is a lot less scrutinated, therefore it might be easier to find weaknesses.

comment Is there a cryptographic function that generates a reconizable visual pattern?
Thanks for the input. Regarding the system, you're making too many assumptions. I never implied that every person would need to print this every day of their life.

@LieRyan I am not concerned with the logistical problem. Persons will be able to print it themselves. In the future they will probably be allowed to use their mobile even to solve the paper issue.
