HID. You’ll need: · Smart Card· Certificate Authority/Management Platform (Windows has one built-in, but it might not provide all the assurances you may need)· Middleware (HID bought ActivClient so this should be available)· Potentially a system that allows web authentication with smart cards rather than passcodes.o Some web applications can do this (such as Dell’s iDrac 8 Enterprise)o Many can’t. So you need something that performs authentication for you with the smart card.o Maybe HID’s system can also assist with this?· A process for key and card management. You can also integrate these cards into your badging system at work. Oh, and Putty doesn’t support smart cards—so you’ll need an ssh client that potentially can do this if you have any nix boxes.
