Installation of Smart Card Terminals

The Solaris smart card framework does not support hot-pluggable terminals, such as USB terminals. Use the following approach to connect and install smart card terminals:

  1. Make the physical connection of the terminal to the system.

  2. Copy the shared library for the IFD handler to the system.

  3. Register the IFD handler for the terminal into the framework with smartcard(1M).
