Over here some banks issue customers a password token device that uses a 
combination of your card, a number sent by the web site and a PIN to 
generate a one-time password. It seems a reasonable system, and isn't 
really new technology. However, while bank web site security may be 
on-topic for other lists I suspect it's wandering off-topic for NANOG.
