Updated coolkey packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The coolkey packages provide the coolkey smart card support library for the CoolKey, common access card (CAC), and personal identity verification (PIV) smart cards.

Bug Fix

Previously, after the user inserted a contactless PIV card, coolkey could not access it in a contactless way. As a consequence, the light indicating the card status started to blink inconsistently, and the Enterprise Security Client (ESC) failed to detect the card. With this patch, coolkey accesses the card certificate or key instead of the PIV authentication, PIV signing, or PIV key exchange keys. As a result, when the user inserts a contactless PIV card, ECS now successfully detects it.
Users of coolkey are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
