Google is envisioning a future in which email and online banking accounts are safer thanks to technology that would add a physical component to security protection. Members of the Google security team reportedly will publish a paper in next month's IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine examining scenarios in which passwords would be a thing of the past. Instead, users would turn to some sort of hardware device to unlock email, online shopping or banking accounts. The article details one device, a Yubico cryptographic card, that authenticates a user.

The only thing that is going to make login systems truly secure is something like encrypted retinal scanning. If it isn't already, I would think this would be something that should be entirely feasible and cost effective, especially if it sees common use. A chip implant would be another option.

What do you think about Hillary Clinton's use of private email servers during her term as Secretary of State?
She broke the law and should go to jail.
She violated guidelines -- the issue is overblown.
She placed important state department information at risk.
Her servers might have been more secure than the government's.
I really don't care one way or the other.
