I'll describe some work in progress on *partial passwords*.  A partial password is a query of a subset of characters from a full password, posed as a challenge such as ``Give me letters 2, 3 and 6 from your password''.  This mechanism is widely adopted yet seems not to have been examined in depth in the academic literature.  I'll talk about some of the questions we've been asking about it and some mechanisms for cracking partial passwords.  (Joint work with Mike Just of Glasgow Caledonian University).
