Hardware token

Hardware token (sometimes called an authentication or security token) is a physical object, usually a small hardware device,  that the owner carries to authorize access to a restricted resource. The user's interaction with a login system proves that the user physically possesses a token specific and unique to that user. Examples include plugging a security token into the workstation or using a key fob or identity badge to swipe or hold up to an authentication device.
