Your employee ID card acting as a hardware ID token, a single
passphrase to log onto your workstation, and the administrators of
each app taking care of which staff are allowed to use their system.
No further passwords/usernames are necessary, just a short timeout
feature to lock the workstation if the employee is stupid enough to
leave their ID card inserted when they leave their desk.
