When configuring login with a smartcard, you have to define smartcard middleware to be used. In this area of the IGEL Setup, you select the middleware (PKCS#11 module) which matches your card or your token. If you want to use your own PKCS#11 library with VMware Horizon, see Using a Custom PKCS#11 Library.

For more information on smartcard authentication in IGEL OS, see the how-to Smartcard Authentication in IGEL OS.
