    Blizzard Entertainment came out with something called the “Authenticator” for World of Warcraft. It’s a device that is suppose to protect an account from unauthorized access. Unfortunately, hackers figure out a way to get around it. (Links to info below)

    While I think NTI is a great idea, the technology just needs one compromise like the Authenticator to bring the whole thing down like a house of cards. NTI is just one piece of a major security puzzle. Without complete end-to-end assured security on both ends (server/desktop), there is always the possibility that a system like this will fail.
