Doc Text:
SSSD smart card support SSSD now supports smart cards for local authentication. With this feature, the user can use a smart card to log on to the system using a text-based or graphical console, as well as local services such as the *sudo* service. The user places the smart card into the reader and provides the user name and the smart card PIN at the login prompt. If the certificate on the smart card is verified, the user is successfully authenticated. Note that SSSD currently does not enable the user to acquire a Kerberos ticket using a smart card. To obtain a Kerberos ticket, the user is still required to authenticate using the *kinit* utility. To enable smart card support in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, you must allow SSSD to prompt for password, one-time password (OTP), or the smart card PIN by modifying the `auth` lines of the `/etc/pam.d/password-auth` and `/etc/pam.d/system-auth` PAM configuration files. For detailed information, see the Identity Management Guide: http://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Identity_Management_Guide/index.html#idm-smart-cards
