Client
Major Swedish bank

Assignment
The client identified a need to increase the security level related to workstation logins.

P-O Carlson Konsult examined the existing solution and its consequences, identified and examined strength and weaknesses related to alternative solutions.

In consultation with the client, P-O Carlson decided to in detail examine smart card based authentication. P-O staged tests in various work environments to address all possible aspects related to an implementation project: usability, backup solutions for temporary complications such as locked card, forgotten card or pin, as well as possible synergy effects, among other things. P-O Carlson examined alternative smart card solutions and investigated how staff both at headquarters and at local offices regarded a possible implementation of smart card based login.

The result
A comprehensive report encompassing a thorough research of all the issues above, that serves as a basis for a future project plan when deciding to implement a smart card based authentication system.
