Mini Case 1 – Belmont State Bank
Belmont State Bank is a large bank with hundreds of branches that are connected to a central
computer system. Some branches are connected over dedicated circuits and others use the dial-up

and each teller’s computer is transaction-coded to accept only its authorized transactions.
