All of this really depends on what will happen when the NPA is
deserialized with incorrect password hashes. It really just needs to be


If you change NPA to implement Serializable what happends after a session
is migrated?


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
