Getting your smartcard to work with Ubuntu

The big bummer of Common Access Cards (CAC) is that there hasnt been a real good solution to get it working in Linux. I've seen it done for OS X but not for Linux. Well the guys over at HR Geeks did a writeup on how to get it working, worth a look if you have made the jump to being full-time Linux.

Thanks for the link! I've got another one coming on how to use the CAC to authenticate to the OS itself, rather than just remote PKI-enabled servers.
