Well according to my information (one of the original developers) it's
always been NT/ASP the only cgi-bin is the demo bit - which is written in
Perl possibly there is other perl bits here and there.
I quite like the service myself - use it quite a bit.
AS for the BOI thing - I think they used to use a bit of hard ware but they
got rid of that and now it's just password based (via https i am sure).
I would have thought that with 8 digit customer number and requesting 2
random digits of your 5 digit pin number and some personal bit of
information was OK security once it was all done over https ? The Ulster
bank one is even simplier (and not near as good as the AIB one).
