Yes, this is the type of thing I'm thinking of, not something which
requires a reader at each machine.  I'd like a technology that can be
used from offsite, or from people's personal machines, without addition
of hardware, and preferably with minimal software changes.

BTW, I received in private e-mail a suggestion to look at


which I did, though I can't tell offhand from the web site what exactly
the components are.  Perhaps more detailed reading will bear fruit...
