I have a Yubikey (from linux.con.au 2011). When I trigger it, it
produces a repeatable sequence of of 40+ lowercase ascii characters.

Often wonder if that could be used as a master key.

Yubikey's demo page( http://demo.yubico.com/php-yubico/one_factor.php
) suggests it can be enhanced with a password, or username/password
but for me it is all "too hard" and fraught with complications if you
lose the Yubikey
