  6. Authentication system utilises the Fujitsu-developed mPollux authentication and access control solution

Fujitsu Finland to implement a civil servants' authentication and access management service

Authentication system utilises the Fujitsu-developed mPollux authentication and access control solution

Helsinki, syyskuu 05, 2012

The Government IT Shared Service Centre and Fujitsu Finland Oy have entered into an agreement on an authentication and access management service Virtu for civil servants. 

The solution is built on an authentication system that utilises the Fujitsu-developed mPollux authentication and access control solution. The method offers easy-to-use and secure access through strong authentication. The service is slated to be launched in the late autumn of 2012.

The system will allow the authentication of civil servants to government applications. Each government office or administrative branch will in turn join the service.  Over the upcoming years the number of users is expected to reach several tens of thousands. All in all there are approximately 85,000 potential users in government agencies.

Previously Fujitsu implemented the so-called Vetuma service, the citizens' authentication and payment service, whereas this new service is for civil servants.  The Government IT Shared Service Centre, which operates under the State Treasury, is responsible for both Vetuma and the new Virtu service. To date, Vetuma has already as many as 135 customer organisations. The volume of authentication transactions is currently around 250,000–350,000 per month, and the number is steadily increasing.
