I really wonder why the computer "ignition key" has not caught on. It should be simple to use car key technology, to provide a proximity unlock of a computer (replacing screen lock passwords) with an explicit button press to authorize access to high-value services.


@Andrew - I agree, seems like you could get traction on the usability pieces here. Improving the desktop would be very helpful but still the server is home to so much of what we have to protect and those tend to be "always on", but totally agree the desktop is candidate for an ignition key, and would zero out a lot of threats.
