Alcor Micro Usb Smart Card Reader Driver
When interfacing with a TV-card for live TV and recording (PVR/DVR), you may need to assign the smartcard reader to the video user group allowing decryption. When using a Smargo Smartreader consider the following udev rule:
If the browser is not able to use the smart card data, probably it is not aware of the service which provides access to the device. This happens if you plug in the smart card reader after you open Firefox.To solve this issue, simply restart Firefox.
Strangely, the Alcor reader will only get listed when a Smart Card is inserted. If I look at it in Device Manager, it doesn't show up under the "Smart card readers" until a card is inserted, too (unless I go to View > Show Hidden Devices).
Even if you only have a moderately sized VDI deployment chances are high you will face the problem of getting USB smart card readers to work on the virtual desktops. Given that this is such a basic requirement it is astonishingly hard to implement correctly. To save you the pain of having to start from scratch here is my description of how to do it.
Smart card readers are USB devices, so the only thing you have to do is plug them into the thin or fat client sitting on your desk and Citrix XenDesktop auto-magically makes them appear in your virtual desktop, right? Wrong. We are going to get to that magic, but we have got a bit of configuring to do first. To auto-map smart card readers like the Reiner SCT or Omnikey devices into virtual desktops we need:
On a Windows machine USB redirection rules are stored in the registry value HKLM\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB\DeviceRules. The format of that multiline string is identical to the file usb.conf on Linux. As described above locate the entry that denies smart card redirection and either delete it or comment it out.
I have tested this configuration with Citrix XenDesktop 5.6. The virtual desktops were running Windows 7 x64 with the XenDesktop VDA 5.6.200. Smart card readers tested were Reiner SCT cyberJack e-com and Omnikey CardMan 3121.
I followed your steps and could not get this to work unless I install a third party Smart Card software on the Virtual Desktop image (in this case Active Client). I really wanted to make this work using only the native Win7 smart card support. Any ideas?
Smart card pass-through authentication is working in my XenDesktop 5.6 environment, however the VDIs are not writing back to the smart card during the certificate auto renewal process. Any ideas what might be breaking that part of the process?

Smart card reader is mapped correctly in Citrix VDI session, software that I use is mPollux DigiSign Client. Software will detect my card as well. When I try to authenticate to specific website within the Citrix VDI session the browser will not detect my card reader. Any advice?
To install AD Bridge Enterprise to support Smart Cards, you must include the smartcard option when you run the installer. If AD Bridge Enterprise is already installed, run the installer again with the smartcard option.
