Smart Card - Sun.
From: Jens Johansson <jens.johansson () arrowhead se>

I have a Sun Blade 100 workstation, running Solaris 9.
The Sun Blade 100 is delivered with Solaris 8, wich does not support the smart card reader, Solaris 9 (wich is installed) does tho...

My questions here are pretty basic.

How does the smart card authentication work ?
What information is stored on the card ?
How's the security ?
What do i achive using this authentication method ?

I mean, will i still need a password? like pgp encrypt password phrase?
What happens if i loose my smartcard?

Hope someone can fill in the blanks.

Best Regards.
