Found this neat USB stick at the Apple Store yesterday. Looked online for more info, but all I could find was the previous, less portable, USB biometric scanner dongle. If you’ve ever been clamoring for a simple yet secure way of logging into your Mac, this might be the way to go.
As you can see, the top cover slides open to reveal the finger scanner. With the Eikon Digital Privacy Manager, you can use it to log into your Mac, return from sleep or screensaver lock, perform fast user switching, unlock your system keychain, authenticate secure preference modifications and probably software installations.
Retails for around US$49.95, and here’s the related press release from UPEK’s web site.
