  • Patent number: 6895502
    Abstract: A method and system for a client user remotely connected to a server computer by a client workstation such as a client personal computer to have securely displayed and to securely confirm that a request to access a resource on the server computer was actually requested by the client user, even if the security of the client computer has been compromised. This method and system can use conventional intelligent security tokens such as smart cards and associated smart card readers as a more secure environment to prompt for, and determine, the client user's intent to access the requested resource. A display securely accessible from the reader, smart card or both displays the resource (or resources) apparently being requested by client user. The client user is prompted to indicate whether it was their intention to access a resource by an input device associated with the reader or smart card.
