While thinking about the subject of secure consoles, etc., I thought
of hardware ID codes : is anyone familiar with any schemes whereby
a keyboard or other peripheral has a unique code which it communicates
to a server, and without which the server will not accept input?
Sort of like a pre-smartcard security technology.
I've never seen or heard of this, I was just wondering if it existed
in any shape or form.
