"Login" using Name, DOB and SSN

Scenario :

User is filling out a long application for a financial product.  At first, they were going to have the ability to create and ID and password, so they can come back and continue at a later time.  However, due to scope reduction, they were suggesting the option of having the user log in to continue using their name, date of birth, and SSN.  

Not going to be enough time for testing (except for walking around the office to get feedback).

How do you think applicants would feel about this?

What's best practice regarding style guides/prototypes/HMI guidelines/process for huge systems in huge corporations?

Let's say (hypothetically) you're working as an HFE-specialist for a major corporation developing huge situational awareness/command and control systems for many countries. The process for HFE/ID/UX is substandard and the interfaces are often put together by the programmers. 

Now what if you could decide how everything will work instead?  What would you do, what standards would you have the company adhere to? What would the processes you design look like? What key documents would be produced?

OK, big question. But where to start?

User cookie authentication vs. Security


I work for a very well-known publishing / corporate site that
attracts a high number of C-level global visitors. Our Security IT

auto-expiring a login authentication cookie.

Input needed for courses in Design for Security

My first question on this platform. Well here it goes:

I am restructuring my Experience Design courses for 1st and 2nd year
bachelor students of Security Technology and I would really
appreciate your input. I've already renamed the course "Design for
Security", because it seems to convey the goal of the course

So I want to use methods en techniques from the design discipline to
create more secure/safe environments. Information security is not
what the program is focused on.

There's a spectrum of different strength requirements. I've seen
sites that don't have any requirements, other than the password
