Does anyone know how to integrate the DoD CAC card with the Windows Server 2003/2008/2012 Login Process? I want my users to be able to insert the card into the reader and just enter their pin to login to the system. I know its possible to do in Linux but I can't find out how to do it in Windows.

This is the best public hint on how to do this is here: However for others who need to set this up, that document was not enough for me to get it working.

On a side note there is an excellent step-by-step process available to walk someone through setting this up but it is available only through the US DoD INFOSEC department.
