This is done by adding the information in /etc/file, at the end of the ccid driver ids list: After you have restarted openct (and possibly udev), you should be able to see your card (additional installation and configuration steps may be required if you use a different card, not directly supported by opensc): After some debugging at opensc level, it seems that the reader returns (via openct) some APDU with leading NULL bytes (more precisely, 252 of those NULL bytes).I wrote a small temporary fix (below) for opensc package but the problem should probably be corrected at a lower level level.

updating video card dell 4300-56

In order for the firmware upgrade to start and complete, I had to deactivate the TPM in the BIOS (update utility tells you that) and switch off the wifi (update utility does not tell you that).

In the end, with this version 11, the opensc patch and the openct patch, the Cryptoflex E-gate works perfectly with the smartcard reader of the E4300, providing the exact same latency as the Dell Smart Card keyboard.

Being familiar with the Cryptoflex E-Gate, I know it is quite fast.

Used in combination with a Dell Smart Card Reader Keyboard (USB ID 413c:2101) for authentication with login, sudo, screensaver unlocking ...

I use it in combination with a Cryptoflex E-Gate 32K Card.

At the time of writing, after having installed opensc and openct packages (and their dependencies), some small configuration steps are still needed to be able to interact with the card.

It fixes the latency associated with the reader (the problem with the automatic ATR parsing feature announced by the reader is still there and requires openct fix described above).

So I rebooted on an USB key running a DOS system and performed the upgrade.

The card is only accessible via the common CCID interface of the broadcom reader.

So, after spending more time on Google, I ended up via external links on Dell's FTP server "Security" repository: There, I downloaded Broadcom_Unified-Security-Hu_A07_R210234.exe, which wine managed to handle correctly.
