"Sydney firm TokenOne has reinvented the "one-time pad for the digital age" in which the users remember a number sequence and each time they try to log-in, for instance, they are sent a number pad on their phone which has a different sequence of letters laid over it each time. The users input their secret number pattern and a corresponding group of letters comes up in the password box of the program they want to use.
