On a dare, Jim Harper makes it through security at SFO without presenting any identification.
Notwithstanding the signs asserting that identification MUST be shown for flying in the US, it seems that the real policy is a MAY - either show some approved id or submit to more extensive searches. So, prove your verinymous identity, or stay anonymous but otherwise demonstrate you pose no risk.
I guess the computing parallel would be to be granted root privileges after proving you have no programming ability. I'm in.
