Just a brief note...there are ways to regain access to your system if DST
and QSECOFR are both lost. However, bypassing the security should probably
be performed via supportline <don't laugh>. The odds are that the DST
passwords or even the operating system has not been secured.

Also, be careful if you educate a user on hacking security. The last thing
you want is a misunderstanding that leads to any form of legal problems!

FYI -- we always get a letter on company stationary from a corporate officer
before we will reset security.
