sulla storia di "Shibboleth"

Shibboleth authentication in tecnologia: >>>
e nella sua origine biblica, dal Libro dei Giudici (cap. 12):

[1] Ora gli uomini di Efraim si radunarono, passarono il fiume verso Zafon e dissero a Iefte: "Perché sei andato a combattere contro gli Ammoniti e non ci hai chiamati con te? Noi bruceremo te e la tua casa".
[2] Iefte rispose loro: "Io e il mio popolo abbiamo avuto grandi lotte con gli Ammoniti; quando vi ho chiamati in aiuto, non siete venuti a liberarmi dalle loro mani.
[3] Vedendo che voi non venivate in mio aiuto, ho esposto al pericolo la vita, ho marciato contro gli Ammoniti e il Signore me li ha messi nelle mani. Perché dunque siete venuti oggi contro di me a muovermi guerra?".
[4] Iefte, radunati tutti gli uomini di Gàlaad, diede battaglia ad Efraim; gli uomini di Gàlaad sconfissero gli Efraimiti, perché questi dicevano: "Voi siete fuggiaschi di Efraim; Gàlaad sta in mezzo a Efraim e in mezzo a Manàsse".
[5] I Galaaditi intercettarono agli Efraimiti i guadi del Giordano; quando uno dei fuggiaschi di Efraim diceva: "Lasciatemi passare", gli uomini di Gàlaad gli chiedevano: "Sei un Efraimita?". Se quegli rispondeva: "No",
[6] i Galaaditi gli dicevano: "Ebbene, dì Scibbolet", e quegli diceva Sibbolet, non sapendo pronunciare bene. Allora lo afferravano e lo uccidevano presso i guadi del Giordano. In quella occasione perirono quarantaduemila uomini di Efraim.
[7] Iefte fu giudice d'Israele per sei anni. Poi Iefte, il Galaadita, morì e fu sepolto nella sua città in Gàlaad.
