The steps and method I mentioned above, I saw long time back in a big EU
company with a large citrix farm. However recently I came across another

I came across a video below.


I am not sure in what situation this is used. Here user is logging in
citrix session itself with a smart card (not VM). While connecting to
xendesktop/app it may or may not ask for same pin again. Based on how
administrator has configured settings on his server for vm/app

Plz guide

Hi Guys! Question on smart card usage in citrix Xen desktop/app
environment at customer side. How do people use it. Exact sequence ? E.g.
what I know

Step 1: user inserts smart card in thin client
Step 2: user logs in to a citrix session and is presented with published
desktop/app session.
Step 3: once user clicks published desktop. He is presented with remote
desktop VM login with "PIN"
Step 4: user enters correct PIN and loggs in to windows desktop session

Now is there some scenario in market where this smart card PIN is asked
before a user logs in to citric session itself. ? I have not seen this
behavior. Please suggest.

If there is any supporting doc you can share. I will be thankful to you
