Passwords are fine for me, for a simple reason. I can store a password in my head, but I can't do that with a key. I don't want to be locked out of all the services I use just because I forgot the USB device with the key once again at home. I use keys to secure my servers instead of passwords, but I don't think that they are a good solution for authentication for forums and other online services.

Inhumane? Indeed. Illegal? Not if you just call it "enhanced interrogation".

Or enhanced beating. Why they don't do such things in public. The law is for the good of public and they worship, and have a say about it atleast in a civilized world.

Legal agencies should not fear the people. In reality public don't know the laws, they don't see, hear, feel, practice it. And this 'enhanced beating' is done by uncivilized daemon and authorized by legal peoples(Those who declare justice).
