Smart Card Logon
Smart Card Logon is a secure method of two-factor authentication for logging into Windows, Web Applications, Remote Sessions, VPN’s, and much more. Smart Card Logon is typically done via certificate-based authentication with a contact chip smart card and PIN. It can also be done with a contactless RFID card and reader using third-party software such as DigitalPersona with an optional second factor. Smart Card Logon is a native feature in the Windows OS and has been added to MacOS Catalina recently.
