Oberthur Card Systems has entered a partnership agreement with Intelligent Environments Group (iE) aimed at giving financial institutions the technology to offer their customers single sign-on access to multiple online accounts.
The solution combines Oberthur's AuthentIC Web Pack - an open-platform based smart card package featuring PKI applet developments, chip readers and security client software - with iE's NetFinance security infrastructure software.
In practice, the package requires banks to issue multi-application cards to their customers who will then access their online accounts using a PIN-based card reader attached to a PC.
