Error description

  • Problem
    Smart card and CAC card logins have been available in varying
    amounts since 9.3.0.0. but are not adequately documented.
    
    E.g.
    
    When using CAC cards your command line would look something
    like: 'doors -pkcs11driver '%DRIVER%' -pkcs11token '%CARDNAME%'
    -certName '%CARDNAME%:%CERT%'
    
    Where:
    
    %DRIVER% is the name of the  driver for the card reader in use
    e.g. c:\windows\system32\aetpkssw.dll
    %CARDNAME% is the name of the card in use e.g. Crescendo C700
    %CERT% is the name of the certificate itself e.g. certOne
    
    None of that is explained.
    
    The exact functionality available has changed slightly across
    version 9.3.0.0, 9.3.0.1 and 9.3.0.2. It would be good if the
    changes could also be documented.
