  The Klingon Imperial Information Net is the main database of information for the Klingon Empire, including biographical records and the public records of the High Council.  Shortly before her death in 2387, Ambassador K'Ehleyr was denied access to files on the Net relating to the High Council's inquiries into the Khitomer Massacre because Council Member Duras had restricted the files to *du-ko-cha* clearance or higher; K'Ehleyr's own clearance of *pah-doQ-cha* was insufficient to gain access. (TNG: "Reunion")

(Lieven, 11/16/2014 < qepHom 2014):  A password or passcode is a {chaw' ngoq}. 

(De'vID < MO, 2/17/2018):  It follows that register for or sign up for (an account) would be {qI’} "sign [a treaty]}.  So register for an account is {mab qI’}.  Maltz says "sign/log in" is {ngaQHa’moH} (and sign out is {ngaQmoH}).  People say {mab ngaQmoH} and so on, but this is a special formation, special argot, frozen form.  Maltz said he thinks this may have been shortened from an earlier way to say it, something like {mab Hung lojmIt ngaQmoH}.
