Windows 8 Smart Card support

There are a host of new features that will be introduced in Windows 8.

This post will talk about Windows 8 Smart Card support

This is part of a series of posts that I’ll be putting in place to kind of stake out the features I believe will be in Windows 8

Below, I will try and summarize each feature for you so that you can get a comprehensive overview of what I believe will be a new Windows 8 features.

Smart cards–the little plastic cards containing a chip–can hold details of a card holder’s identity, and that coupled with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) is more secure than a password–the intruder needs both the physical card and knowledge of the PIN to gain access.

Logging on to a Windows 7 computer with a smart card is relatively simple for the end-user.

The computer needs to have a smart card reader attached or installed. The user inserts their smart card and presses Ctrl, Alt, Delete to bring up a logon screen.

It’s a good bet that Windows 8 will have Smart Card support.
