    i can't 'do' the lingo on the page, but i *think* this might help:

    http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/11/...o-en-opensuse/

    indirecta amistosa: that page found using this search string:

    sitepensuse.org login linux smart card DNIe

    http://www.google.com/search?q=site%...mart+card+DNIe

    hope it works for you, let us know!!

    Thanks:

    That configuration is for DNIe and Firefox. I've done it following instrucions of DNIe manual and it works fine.

    What I try is to use the smart card for starting session (kdm, gnome) or even others (ssh, telnet,ftp,...).

    I've tried with pam_pkcs11 but not worked as hoped.

    Thanks

    Tying the DNIe to log in authentication would not be a simple thing but it should be doable. One problem is that I believe that the authentication is tied to a web connection. An interesting article here Understanding the DNIe, Part I : Device Authentication Limited Entropy Dot Com but not a lot of help in what you want to do.

    I suppose that I'll have to wait for.

    I've tried configuring pam_pkcs11.conf but even I say to use
    use_pkcs11_module = opensc it always uses nssdb (with ubuntu I didn't have this problem, I had others).

    I've also tried to download pam_pkcs11 source and compile it, but I found errors which don't know how to solve...

    I didn't thought this was so difficult...


    Thanks for your reply.

    You may try to contact the guy that wrote the article I referenced, he seems knowledgable.
