Cybercom and Microsoft launch system for fast, secure web-based identification


2007-10-15, 08:00
Cybercom and Microsoft developed a secure login solution using e-authentication for Microsoft-based networks. Microsoft's Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server and Cybercom's Trusted Authentication Server form the foundation for the solution, which is called Microsoft Authentication Broker.

"The Microsoft Authentication Broker solution is for enterprises, municipalities, and 24/7 public agencies," says Tomas Rimming, Security division manager, Cybercom Sweden East, "organisations that need secure, cost-efficient ways to give e-authorised users access to services – users such as customers, inhabitants, and patients."

Cybercom developed the solution for the Swedish market. It's built on standard, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 components and an ISA Server 2006 firewall. The solution is adapted for e-authorisation from digital certificate issuers such as BankID, Nordea, and TeliaSonera. The Microsoft Authentication Broker supports a mobile standard called BankID in the mobile, which will be launched in Sweden during 2008.
