RE: Smart card help

Take a look at the ikey or ActivCard ActivKey.  They are SmartCard and reader
in one, so you don't have to carry a reader around all the time.  It's also
plug and play, works great in Windows environment.  I think it is probably an
expensive implementation of PKI.  Usually people use PKI as a cheap form of two
factor authentication, and adding a smart card just cost you about $40-50 extra
per user.  However, the technology is cool though. IMHO

Hello wizards,

does anyone has information about the possibility
of storing (X.509-) certificates on smartcards and access
them from SecuRemote through PKCS#11 (or CAPI?)
as opposed to importing (and storing) them into the
SecuRemote software directly?

Thanks for any comment,

Greetings Gurus,
Just wondering if anyone could help. I have a certain proggie that connects 
to a server. The proggie can use certificated generated by the server to 
log onto the server. When you log onto the server with the proggie then the 
proggie asks for either a username or a certificate path.

What I would like to do is to use a smart card to log onto the server. Any 
ideas how I could go about doing this?

BTW, the proggie is the Checkpoint GUI client. I have tried the CP list, no 
one seems to know coz no one replied.
