Yeh I got one, its pretty good for security reasons. Quite how the fuck that can interact with my computer, ie those authorisation numbers and know my PIN code is beyond me!

I think the unit and natwest server use a synchronised clock to produce the same code, there's no communication with your pc as such.

Is the encrypted PIN not just kept on the card? Then when you key it in, the scanner encodes it and compares against the one on the card.

I don't really understand how it works. I have to insert my card into the reader, push the Respond button and enter my card’s PIN. I then have to enter a number into the card reader - it’s provided by the NatWest Internet Banking web-site. Once I enter that number into the card reader and press OK, it then displays a number that I must enter into the web-site. I think.

Hope I've misunderstood how it'll be used. It's going to look great if I have to start scanning my card at work when I should actually be doing some work.

It seems to be more for things like: Add a new Payee, Amend a Payee, Create New Standing Order, Change Security Number and Change Password than straightforward transactions.
