    Hello everyone,

    I got a hold of a working smart card, and on my dell d600 laptop i have a smart card reader (Integrated Smart Card Reader ISO 7816 1/2/3/4 microprocessor cards (t=0, T=1)
    -3v & 5v Java card
    -Reader certification: WHQL certified for Microsoft PC/SC, EMV level 1, 9600 to 115200 BPx
    ) . Now I heard somewhere or saw something and I think that it's possible to login into windows with a smart card. If this is the case how do I do this? This sounds really cool if it's true. If its not than what can you do with a smart card?

    Thanks, and a reply asap would be the best (because I have very limited internet)

    Thanks,

    lieb39

    in case it matters: my laptop specs

    there is a way, but if you only have 1 smart card, and it craps out on you.... well your in trouble.

    o sorry i dunno how.
