How are passwords stored in systems that require the user to enter specific digits of their password?

How are passwords stored in systems that require the user to enter specific digits of their password? I am familiar with encryption techniques such as MD5 hashes, but I can't see a way in which a system would store the entire encrypted password, and still be able to authenticate individual characters, unless the password is stored in plain text, which seems unlikely for a bank.

Install Linux or windows without a cd drive or usb just direct access to the hard drive.

Install Linux or windows without a cd drive or usb just direct access to the hard drive. I have an old cf-29 toughbook by Panasonic that I've had for years. I'm trying to resurrect it and for the life of me cant remember my own cmos password. Aside from possibly nuking the bios password which will be near impossible due to the NATO standards this notebook was built to. I was thinking I would just try to install an OS directly to the hard drive and simply transplant it back into the toughbook. [more inside]

How to password protect a linked file?

I need to send an MP3 music file to a number of email addresses. I want to do this by directing people to a download on a web link, rather than emailing the (large) file direct. I also want to be able to password-protect the file in that link (either the file or the link), so the music doesn't get passed around beyond the list of recipients. Does anyone know of any good resources for this? Thanks, oh wise ones.

The sun is shining...but the ice is slippery.

Tell me about the early days of using passwords to verify information on computers or over the telephone: 1. When we're people first expected to do so? 2. Did it seem weird to you at the time? 3. Was there anything analogous to the password concept at the time? 4. (Most important to me) How was the concept introduced to the public? [more inside]

How can I stop someone from changing my gmail password?

Gmail security: Someone keeps trying to recover, or change, the password for my gmail account. I'd previously set my gmail recovery option to send me an SMS, and I'm getting a lot of SMSes saying, "Your Google Account recovery code is: ... If you did not request this code, you can safely ignore this message". I've already changed my secret question to be really obscure, but what else should I do to protect my account? Every couple of weeks, I get bombarded with SMSes because someone is trying to access my account. Can I temporarily disable the recovery option? I'm just worried that someone might guess the answer to my secret question by brute force or some other means.

Password recovery or doom?!?

PasswordBuffooneryFilter: I've had a Hotmail account for eons, don't use it a ton, get a couple things sent there on an ongoing basis. Had the password stored via Firefox and it has disappeared from the remember-password feature. It's been long enough that I don't remember the password-recovery info (favorite pet, etc.) and I didn't register an alternate e-mail (that they would use to send me the means to access the account). Based on the Microsoft info I've slogged through and Internet searches, it seems I'm sunk. Or am I?? Much gratitude for any help folks can provide.
