Device used in some internet banks. You have a device, which has only
chipset, digital pad with on/off switch and display, all embedded in small
case. Authentication is made using C/R algorithm: you receive a number
from system, enter it into token, chipset signs it using stored RSA key, you
get a number from display and use is as a password.
