This is a Linux advocacy group, not a support group for US
Department of Defense Microsoft product users.

Per http://www.faqs.org/faqs/linux/advocacy/faq-and-primer/

Paragraph 1.4 states, "The charter of comp.os.linux.advocacy is:
For discussion of the benefits of Linux compared to other
operating systems."

mythology of the computer industry.'

4.6 Card Readers

Middleware shall operate and comply with any reader that is ISO
7816 (5v, 60mA) compatible, Personal Computer/Smart Card (PC/SC)
Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) Logo certified.
Additionally, middleware destined for workstations other than
WINTEL shall be interoperable with PC/SC Movement for the Use of
Smart Cards in a Linux Environment (M.U.S.C.L.E) certified and
Open Card Framework (OCF) compliant reader drivers.


This is in regards to Department of Defense requirements for
usage of common access card (CAC) access.
