Hi, i have just been thinking of purchasing a Network Associated Storage Drive for my home, to stick files for myself and other family members to access when they want to, I then thought of security. I have a Keychain for a popular mmorpg game and was wondering if i could use one like it as a security measure for the drive, i intend to buy an internet security program but as we all know they aren't 100% safe. Is i possible to have a keychain connect to the drive, with the pin changing every 2 minutes or so?

I'm not quite sure why you would want to have that level of security on a device that simply stores family files. Would it not be far simpler to just password-protect the files? No security measure is 100% effective, but a decent alpha-numeric password that doesn't contain a dictionary word would take a very long time to break, and in any case nobody is going to be trying that on your home NAS drive.
