  • Hi,

Maybe it will be a good idea to include the open source program I designed to enable smart card logon with the eid on Windows (>=Vista) : http://www.mysmartlogon.com/products/eidauthenticate.html Note : smart card logon is available only with windows server and the eid can work only since Windows 2008 R2 functional domain level.

FYI I'm designing a process for collecting certificates for AD login, but it's not in production yet.
