which interests some software factory over here as web authentication

2) &.?V-}?*A
3) !$aZ-umx>
4) {[|q-J>+I

numbers on the y axis building some matrix in the way like this example.
The resulting fields then contain the passwords:

banking or other websites? Anybody an idea what kind of technology is
behind this list (looks to me like the normal cancellation list only in

Best regards and thanks for your comments,
