SmartSign is a set of modules which allow integration of smartcard technology into an OpenCA based Public Key Infrastructure in order to provide smartcard-based digital signature and local authentication security services. It allows direct signing of e-mail and e-news from within Netscape using smartcards and supports signing of generic files from command line. The package includes a PAM module too, which allows system administrators to integrate smartcard-based authentication for local users. A modified version of the OpenSSH client allows secure authentication to a remote server. A couple of command line tools allow signing and verifying generic files from the shell. Finally, a command line interactive shell supports all operations on the card, and can be used to write scripts that automate particular tasks on the card. Currently only Schlumberger Cyberflex Access 16K is supported.
