Tripcodes (1)

Tripcodes are used as a proof of identity, while still remaining anonymous. If you enter your name as Name#tripcode, it will be shown as Name!3GqYIJ3Obs, the idea being that only you know the code word used to generate the tripcode.

However, the tripcode algorithm is well known, and it is fairly easy to perform a BruteForceAttack on it to find out someone's code. Therefore, tripcodes are more of a token than a guarantee.
