Password accepted, system shutting down.

Oh, no, the former Evil Mastermind has cleverly regained control of the system and stopped it. :thumbsup:

P.S.: However, in order to reprogram the system, he needs to explain the algorithm so that the system recognizes its master.

This I can't yet do. There's a couple of [boolean] states that depend on something I haven't figured out (leaving 4 possible passwords, of which DudleyDude guessed one and I did the other 3). Still pondering...

Well, I was left with the same unknowns as you, plus a problem with the third character.

Looks like Cherry Lane was right after all!

Spoiler for Response to the rest of the algorithm proposed

Feel free to give us a few more examples if you think it would help. I'm still stumped!
