It's not actually a security token per se. They are all the same; I've
borrowed my wife's before now.

The personalisation is in the debit card you have to insert.


Not in the HSBC ones. It's the size of a credit card, and doesn't make any
use of any other cards.

Nationwide also ask for the last 4 digits on the card, and they now
ask for your DOB, so the login sequence is:-

Enter customer number on computer

Enter Date of Birth on computer

Find card and reader

Enter last 4 digits of card on computer

Put card in reader

Hit 'Identify' on reader

Enter PIN on reader

Enter the displayed digits from the reader on computer


HSBC have a slightly different type of 'thingy', it's not a card
reader but it *is* yours and only yours. The login sequence is:-

Enter customer number on computer

Enter 'unique information' on computer

Press and hold button on 'thingy'

Enter PIN on 'thingy'

Hit button on 'thingy'

Enter the digits displayed on the 'thingy' into computer


Exactly
