the problem with the sms is they might not reach destination due third party
problems (carrires, etc) i used that as a token for my company vpn system...

a smarter would be:

1) user calls from a defined number (mobile) to a pbx
2) pbx checks any and ask for a code
3) pbx replies with a token

user logs with this normal credentials (bank account and password) + token +
"common pool of questions".

its not expensive...asterisk can do it.

my 5p
