Whether it is an external reader or the keyboard one the driver has to
be installed.
I know RHEL provides such a driver in their kernel/repository.

Then all you do is to append the certificate to the browser and when you access
secure site it will ask you to provide a PIN.

But as I said - the first thing is to have an appropriate driver.
And when you do - attach the reader and insert the card.

The driver should kick in, the light on the reader should start blinking and
there should appear a dialog about the card successfully read.

If that part works - then we should start checking the browser.

Thank you.
