Sun Ray Smartcard FAQ

I had to put together a little FAQ on Sun Ray smartcards for a customer recently. Since this info doesn't seem to be in one easily accessible place on the web at the moment, I'll post it here.

\* The smartcards that Sun ships are Schlumberger PayFlex smartcards. They are actually now technically "Axalto" Payflex cards since Schlumberger spun off it's smartcard division. That division is now a separate entity called Axalto.

\* A full list of the various cards supported is found in /etc/opt/SUNWut/smartcard.

\* Cards based on ISO-7816-1 are supported. Cards with a T=0 or T=1 communication protocol are supported - you'll need SRSS 3.0 or later to get T=1 support.

\* When buying cards from a vendor other than Sun, nine times out of ten no special 'activation' is required. The Sun Ray simply reads the card's serial number, no special pre-work is needed.

If the card is not instantly usable you will get an icon in your screen with a symbol representing Sun Ray and a card and a green arrow from the card to the Sun Ray.

If you look at auth.log and see that the card has not been recognized you may need to create a smartcard config file in /etc/opt/SUNWut/smartcard and include it in the probeorder.
