Secure Logon

Appears in the issue.

EtherTrust of Amiens, France, offers a strong one-step authentication technology based on smart-card technology and functional with all operating systems including Microsoft, Apple, and Linux. Based on SSL and EAP standards, its products simplify and secure Web site identification. When connecting to personal sites (such as banking, online gaming, or online communities), the user simply inserts the USB key, so there’s no login or password to enter. The system ensures that the Web browser and the cli­ent’s computer are inactive for the identification phase and that the smart-card supports the authentication autono­mously. Spyware becomes useless, as the computer is not directly communicating with the site.
