One measure to enhance security would be externel storage of keys, on a

These are indeed a good idea for some environments - the big question is
whether you're willing to pay $50 per seat for the reader and another $20
per user for the media

I can't speak for the rest of the world, but I keep my keys on my wrist.


I figured I needed a new watch, so i might as well get one that was useful. I 
realise that this doesn't provide the security of a smartcard, however a USB 
flash key is a damn sight cheaper. (except when it's built into a watch)

The comments I get when I explain why I have to "plug in my watch" before I 
can login to fix something lead me to believe that not everyone is as 
paranoid as me.
