Security would be the only reasonable explanation for imposing such a 
constraint, which is why everyone assumes it is the reason.

You are on your own.  You have imposed unnecessary constraints on your 
problem and are asking us to provide a solution within those, 
unreasonable, constraints.

This is an extreme case of a common problem with support forum 
questions, which is that people ask how to make their solution work, 
when they should ask how best to solve their underlying problem.

(Although this doesn't look like the case here, another reason for 
over-constrained support requests is college homework.)
