Explanation:
I believe "counterpassword", as in a 2nd password in reply to a 1st password, is commonly used, alternatively "counter password".

Example sentence(s):
  • Passwords in military evolved to not just a password, but a password and a <b>counterpassword</b>; in the opening days of the Battle of Normandy, paratroopers used a password - "thunder" - which was answered with the correct response - "flash".
