China has already been using this system with their banking account. You are provided with an authenticator for your checking account for logging in online.

Not just China, the internet banking for my business uses an authenticator

Same thing in Sweden. I always thought Blizzard got the idea from banks, but quite frankly, I've no idea how internet banking security works in the US.

My bank has been using authenticators on their online banking site for about six months now...I enter my login info, hit a button, and a code is text-messaged to my phone. Enter that number online, then I get to a final login screen where I verify a picture and phrase then enter my password.Fairly beefy security compared to others, in my opinion.
