Shadowrun :: Passkey

From the Shadowrun manual... "Passkeys are physical modules ranging in size from a fingernail to a stylus or credit card. They use a combination of encryption and materials engineering to create a unique key that is plugged into a common commlink jack. If the correct passkey is not connected to a device that tries to access the node using this method, the access is denied. In addition to standard passkeys, more advanced passkeys have recently been developed. One of these passkeys is the nanotech passkey, in which a small colony of nanites form unique and dynamic patterns for authentication. These passkeys require a small amount of upkeep to sustain the nanomachines, which is usually accomplished by leaving the passkey plugged into a commlink for a few minutes each day."
