and BANG! They have a userid and password. If you're a place
with a single userid/password for most applications, there could
be a fair amount of value to it.
A better scheme would be sending control to university machine, which
accepts the credentials and then sends the 3rd party a yes/no... Similar
to how it is done with some types of credit card verifications.
