Intel will work to add SIM card authentication for 3G, Wi-Fi to laptops: They’ll work with the GSM Association to incorporate necessary support to allow this standard module used around the world for network authentication to work in laptops without modification. SIM cards have been used as far back as 2002 in tests in which adapters were authenticated (and billed) across a network by using a SIM module plugged into Wi-Fi cards. (EAP-SIM is the protocol used to incorporate this within an 802.1X framework.)
