comment What are the shortcomings of the following bank transaction authentication scheme?
It sounds fun to me, if a little like hard work for your average customer. The main downside though is that this is an already solved problem - tokens and card-readers, SMS messages, callbacks etc exist already and the implementation procedures are well understood.

comment If I include a Forgot Password service, then what's the point of using a password?
Some folks I know do use this for websites they use infrequently, deliberately setting their password to a very long random string, and relying on password reset if they want to log in.

comment Dedicated Server in Cloud Environment - SSL Remote Login vs Dedicated VPN
Hi - welcome to Security Stack Exchange, This site works well with single questions (have a look at the faq, linked at the top of the page) but it you have a few questions here. Is the core one you want answered "How secure is RDP?" - if so, I would just cut the question down to that one.

comment Why would someone trust DuckDuckGo or other providers with a similar privacy policy?
I have edited this back to be specific around DuckDuckGo - I think the answers given are applicable to other providers if they use the same sort of privacy policy, but the question was sparked from this specific provider.
