During the most recent Security Now podcast, Steve Gibson talked about how VeriSign has introduced a security-token app for the iPhone, essentially providing the same functionality as the PayPal security key (or “football,” as he likes to refer to it) in an app.

What he didn’t mention is that an equivalent app is available for Android as well. I searched the Market and found the VeriSign VIP Access app, which I immediately installed and linked to my PayPal account. There have been times when I’ve wanted to access my PayPal account while away from home, and I don’t routinely carry my security key with me. Now I don’t have to: I never go anywhere without my phone.
