not on the software CD.

And it was pointed out to me that we were on the wrong track.
The Controlled Access Mode (Kiosk mode) does not offer users

And the smartcard does not offer authentication with the SunRay
software but only a means to identify a session so that it can
be moved to an other appliance.

So now we use normal logins, but have restricted the access to
registered cards only (utpolicy -a -g -r card -t clear).
I am now looking at the command smartcard(5) if that can enable
easy logins.
