Hello all

As far I know Internet banking is only web-based.

Usually, Internet  banking is made by a network of three servers: Web
Server, Internet Banking Server and a Customer SQL Database.

Requests for online Baking information are passed on from the Web server to
the Internet Banking Server.
Data security between the customer browser and the web server is handled
through a security protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL provides
data encryption, server authentication, and message integrity for a Internet

I think that an easy way to use Internet banking transactions and services
for people with
disabilities could be made using Email commands.

The idea is to replace the web communication between the customer's PC and
the web Server by Email commands  (like we use in some mailing lists). This
could be made probably using secure email - using digital ID you can
identify yourself and exchange encrypted messages.

Do you know any Internet e-commerce or Internet banking service using this
concept ?
