  1. Use Smart card in Linux VMs


    Hi, I've recently enabled hyper-v on my Windows 10 pro system that's updated (June 2019). I've seen that enhanced session mode is available for both the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and the Ubuntu 19.04 templates from the "quick create" menu. This has the ability to access local resources from the VM when connected using enhanced session mode. By default smartcards are selected for passthrough to the Linux VMs.


    My problem is that my smartcard isn't accessable by the VM. Previously I have used smartcard sharing on VMware workstation (I'm aware that full USB passthrough to a Linux VM isn't available in hyper-v), however my usual methods of using the SC for SSH authentication - for VMware VMs and on baremetal machines - doesn't detect the card/device at all. This is either the gnupg-agent method or the PKCS11 method for public key authentication.


    My SC can be used for SSH authentication on the win10 host using putty, but I really need to use it in a Linux environment.


    So far my searches haven't yielded any informention on this. The last time I tested hyper-v, enhanced session mode wasn't available for Linux VMs, even if they were created from an offical template in the quick create menu. Has anyone got this working? Or could you point me in the right direction for relavent documentation?


    Thanks in advance.


    (This could be in the wrong catagory...)

    Guide: How to enable, use, and configure SLI on Linux.

    I guess the next logical step would be to report on the performance you can get with SLI in Linux. That'd be my suggestion anyway.

    Connect a smart card

    Thank you Yasir; I read the content in the link provided; the problem I have now is not to ask for smart card when log on but to connect a smart card when update applications. Do you have a suggestion for that?

    Windows 10 smart card login


    Okay, so I wanted to set up my computer to log in via smart card as a secondary way to enter. I have a CAC and a CAC reader and I got them working. Here's the problem. I set the login via smart card enabled but it never setup a user or even registered my CAC as a login.... so now I am stuck locked out of my computer and every time I put in my pass code it says "you must use a smart card to sign in". How can I bypass this or reset my computer? This kinda erks me I jumped a coupe steps and jacked this up.
