Before You Begin
You have a Secure Shell server that is configured for smart cards. You have inserted a smart card into the CCID-compliant smart card reader that is attached to a PC or workstation.
$ ssh username@SSH-server
Confirm with your administrator which cryptographic module to use.
$ ssh -I /usr/lib/libcackey.so username@SSH-server $ ssh -I /usr/lib/libcoolkeypk11.so username@SSH-server
The terminal displays the progress of smart card authentication.
Smartcard authentication starts Smart card found. Welcome LNAME.FNAME.ID!
