Unification of the way users are authenticated and payments are signed across bank’s subsidiaries

We have joined the bank group’s internal development team to help them standardize their approach to authentication and logging in of users and signing of financial operations. Group’s subsidiary banks were not synchronized in this area, which required correction. A new software token was introduced which will replace the existing various solutions used across the group.
