Thwarting identity theives

There has been some discussion today around simple ways to thwart identity theives, specifically in regards to your verification questions. Bruce Schneier mentions how Ally Bank wants its customers to make up their questions and answers. Slugsite brought an interesting idea to the table by just making up things for your answers to the static questions.

I think both are good ideas. We need a way to better identify who someone really is, especially when it comes to online banking.
