Yes, Didier, computers can obviously be hacked. However, I never ONCE mentioned that they were an acceptable place to store one's private key. I never said that. I am unsure why you brought it up.
This fact is one that should be obvious to all... :-)
What we are discussing are things that would be difficult or close to impossible to hack.
Like a USB dongle, a disk, or a smart card. There would have to be some type of willing compliance or theft of an actual physical object in order to accomplish this task.
A smart phone, on the other hand, CAN be hacked and many of these devices are hacked remotely on a daily basis. This is not a secure place to store one's key.
