While McClane makes sure Tony is dead on the 31st Floor stairway landing, Theo is attempting to break into the computer with possible passwords. He reads over the military record of one of the board members:

MILITARY RECORD: ASSIGNED AIRCRAFT CARRIER AKAGI
JULY 1940.

CAMPAIGNS AND BATTLES:

PEARL HARBOR; RABAUL; 
DARWIN; JAVA; CEYLON.

MIDWAY - WOUNDED.

Then, the test code “AKAGI” appears to have worked. The computer says:

AKAGI --> ENGLISH TRANSLATION --> RED CASTLE
On the door to the safe, the message "ACCESS CODE ACCEPTED" appears, followed by "LOCK No ONE DISABLED. DO YOU WISH TO PROCEED"

“You bet your ass I wish to proceed!” says Theo, donning safety glasses. Theo starts up a large drill on a moveable stand.

Back upstairs, McClane looks through Tony’s satchel. He finds two ammo magazines, a walkie-talkie, and a Zippo lighter. Putting down the bag, John examines the label on Tony’s sweater, then pats him down for more clues to the gang’s motives and capabilities. He finds a wallet with a California driver’s license, dated 1990. The license has a picture of Tony, and says his name is Richard G. Aronson, 15306 Riverside Dr., Sherman Oaks, CA 91423. Sex M, Hair BLN, Eyes BL, Height 6-0, Weight 195, and a birthdate of 1-6-46.

Some time passes. Tony’s, now barefoot, is tied to a chair in the service elevator. McClane can’t fit into Tony’s shoes.

“Nine million terrorists in the world, and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister!” says John.
