The "Opengate" system is a network gateway system for the user authentication and usage logging. The "Opengate" system authenticates the user at accessing to the network. But one can use anonymously a public PC without a user authentication until accessing to the network. This causes a risk to be set a trap like a key-logger. This paper proposes the "OpengateLogon" system, an authentication system for a public PC with the "Opengate" system. This system allows us to introduce a startup authentication mechanism and to prevent an anonymous use.
