USB Drive

Security gurus recommend what they call “three-factor” authentication.” That means requiring users to prove their identity with something they know, (say, a password) something they have (like a physical token) and something they are (such as a fingerprint). A cheap USB stick from UPEK incorporates all three for around $75. The thumb drive uses RSA software to generate a changing password every minute, ensuring the user has the drive in hand.

It also incorporates a fingerprint reader to make sure the tiny gadget hasn’t been stolen.
