4.31. coolkey

An enhanced coolkey package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The coolkey package contains driver support for CoolKey and Common Access Card (CAC) smart card products.


This update adds support for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart cards.
Common Access Cards (CAC) are defined to have exactly three certificates. However, some cards that used the CAC interface supplied one or two certificates only, which may have caused the coolkey utility to fail. CAC smart cards that contain less than three certificates are now supported.
Users of PIV and CAC smart cards are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds these enhancements.
