HI, been following this interesting discussion.
I believe 2 factor authentication is a must for this type of thing. PCi
compliance?
Why leave yourself open to any type of attacks when it can easily be
avoided.

You are fooling yourself guys. If it's published (as below), it's in a
database and crackable. Better: use OTP tokens. There will be no re-play
attacks possible.

Besides, keyloggers capture your static passwords no matter what you come up
with. Use an OTP like Yubikey. I's 44-63 random characters long and
different every time. Static passwords are obsolete.

Good luck cracking that password. Kipling's Widow at Windsor for those 
that don't recognize it.
