  • Publication number: 20010027527
    Abstract: Techniques for providing secure transactions can include receiving a request for access to a first server by a user. The request includes the user's credentials such as biometric information, an electronic certificate, or other information. The user is authenticated based on the credentials, and a token is sent to the first server. The token indicates whether the user has been authenticated and includes criteria about the user. Based on the criteria in the token, the first server can determine whether the user is authorized to perform a particular transaction in connection with a specified file or application at the first server. The user can be re-authenticated prior to allowing the transaction to be completed. Each time the user is authenticated, a time-stamped record can be stored. Encryption can be used to enhance security.
