If you know Italian check this: http://aladdin.it.net/ To tell the truth the company that developed the software if in south africa (not sure).
Simply, it makes your cell phone became a smartcard: if you try calling the number showed in the next page you'll see the state of the text changing in "receiving the calling" and after a while "logon in progress" and at the end you'll be prompted in your personal web page (in this case a banking system). So you don't need a smartcard, you simply use yours cell phone smartcard. I don't know if calling from abroad the demo still works.... if you try tell me, please If this solution doesn't meet your reurements try to have a look at JavaCards from http://java.sun.com/products/javacard/ Maybe the "write once run anywhere" statement would really help you (regarding windows clients /linux servers ) I hope this is what you need, Evan "Phpcoder" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ha scritto nel messaggio [EMAIL PROTECTED]">news:[EMAIL PROTECTED]... > HI > I would like to hear from anyone who have possibly worked on > implementing a smartcard solution to controll access to a website. > I am looking into possibilities for a proposal, and one of the > requirements of the client is that the system data has to be accessible > via the web, and that the access to the information has to be extremely > secure. > The administrators of the site as well as the clients will need to be > verified with ( ideally ) smartcards. > Obviously, you can deduct from this that the system will not > neccessarily be implemented on the internet, but most probably WAN.
