If you know Italian check this:
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,
