Description jared jennings 2009-01-14 17:27:10 EST
Description of problem:

When users use smartcards to log in, they frequently forget to take them back out when locking the screen or logging out. Remind them, perhaps by playing a sound, or showing a message, or even refusing to complete the (user-requested) screen lock or logout until the smartcard is removed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in with a smartcard.
2. Lock the screen.
3. Walk away.

Actual results:
The screen is locked and I am gone; an interloper only has to type a smart card PIN to unlock it. Security is degraded.

Expected results:
A reminder happens, I take the smartcard with me, the screen locks, and an interloper has to forcibly obtain my smartcard from my person, get back to my computer AND type a PIN to unlock my screen. Security is upheld.
