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.
