Fujitsu Finland has delivered a centralized authentication and user management service to the Finnish State Treasury. The service is implemented using the Fujitsu-developed SDA mPollux security product. The authentication process is run as a service at the Fujitsu server centre and the State Treasury pays a fee for the service based on the number of authentication transactions.

The service agreement includes application access control, a user management tool and the authentication services offered by the mPollux Security Server. mPollux is a secure solution because it provides so-called strong authentication.

The new service allows the Finnish State Treasury’s customer organisations to authenticate State Treasury applications through a single login. Previously, user authentication was application-specific and each application had a separate user registry and login procedure. The management of usernames and passwords was difficult both from the perspective of the application administrator and the user. The new centralised authentication system has made user management much easier.

"We chose the Fujitsu solution because the price and functionality matched our requirements. Scalability and information security were also key selection criteria. Initially, the authentication service covers just two applications, but according to the plan its use is expected to expand rapidly this year. In future, the criticality of the service will increase with the introduction of, e.g., the authentication of system administrators of our extranet services,” describes Jussi Koskivaara, IT Manager, Finnish State Treasury.

The collaboration between the Finnish State Treasury and Fujitsu is regulated by the Electronic Services Framework Agreement signed in 2001. The first fruits of this collaboration include the Netra reporting system and the State Treasury intranet communication solution.
