     This is a little app I created to give some of my clients an alternative to remembering passwords. Basically, it turns floppy disks into KeyCards. The best part about this is that simply copying the disk will not create a working key! (Although Imaging the disk might, but this hasn't been tested) I would not call this High-level security, but if you need a reasonable level of security without the hassles of administering passwords, this is the code to use. Or, you could use this in addition to regular passwords to give an added level of security. Thanks to the code on this site provided by Barry Dunne for encryption. Please vote.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
