About IPT & 2FA

I read an article today which says-


MasterCard today became the latest company to employ Intel's Identity Protection Technology (IPT) -- which basically converts a laptop or client device into a second factor of authentication -- for online commerce.


Full details here: http://www.darkreading.com/authentication/167901072/security/client-security/231903013/baking-strong-authentication-into-client-devices.html


My thoughts-


Hardcoded Intel chip plays the role of software token, thus providing the token for Two Factor Authentication (2FA). Entire security lies on the fact that it is very very difficult to break into the hardcoded chip. This sounds promising for now.
