HP Compaq Business Notebook nc6000 Series - Smart Card Reader Overview

Introduction

Select notebooks models are equipped with an embedded Smart Card Reader. On these models, the driver for the Smart Card Reader is preinstalled. No action is necessary to install the driver.
The Smart Card Reader is used with industry-standard Smart Cards designed to work with Windows 2000 and Windows XP Professional operating systems.
Smart Cards are available from a variety of manufacturers and service providers. Smart Cards can provide functions such as protecting a Windows user account and securing online transactions. Card capabilities depend on the Smart Card itself as well as the Smart Card application being used.
In addition, a personal digital certificate can be used with the Smart Card Reader. To do so, ensure that the personal digital certificate and software purchased are compliant with the Microsoft PC/SC Smart Card standard.

Safeguarding the Smart Card Reader

The HP ProtectTools Smart Card Manager utility can be used with selected notebooks to provide a way to safeguard the Smart Card Reader. This utility restricts unauthorized access to the Smart Card and Smart Card Reader.
For instructions on using HP ProtectTools Smart Card Manager, refer to the Help menu in the utility.
