Fedora :: Getting Smart Card Reader Added As Security Device In Firefox?

Jun 10, 2009

Anyone running fedora 11 have any luck getting a smart card reader added as a security device under firefox?
Specifically from firefox: Edit-Preferences-Advanced-Encryption tab-Security_Devices-Load;
Enter arbitrary name and "/usr/lib64/libcoolkeypk11.so" as the module.

This worked fine in fedora10 and was the necessary step to getting a card reader to work with firefox. In fedora11 (with firefox beta) the browser just comes back with nothing, it doesn't even respond. Note I am familiar with the concept of pki and certificates as well as certutil, pkcs11_inspect, pklogin_finder, etc. Also note utlities like pkcs11_inspect and pklogin_finder and esc all work and communicate with the reader and read the contents of the card but smart card login configured via the authentication applet (as working in fedora 10) is not working either.

Fedora :: F12 - Smart Card (DoD CAC) Stopped Working

Dec 16, 2009

Our smart card readers stopped working with Firefox and Thunderbird after upgrading from Fedora 9 to 12. When I first opened it, Thunderbird warned that the "CAC Reader (DoD Configuration Extension)" is incompatible with the current version (3.0b4) and disabled the extention. Firefox (3.5.5) just doesn't work. The module listed in Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird [Security Devices] was "/usr/lib64/pkcs11/libcoolkeypk11.so" which is still there. To get it working in Fedora 9 I was able to run an installer from [URL]. That was before my VeriSign software certificate expired.

Now I can't even connect to forge.mil because they require a PKI cert to connect. I'm wondering how they expect someone to get a driver for their CAC reader if they need a working CAC reader to get the driver - seems like a "Catch 22" situation. I also still have the rpm's that I downloaded before from software.forge.mil. I tried installing those but that didn't help.

Does anyone know if there is a later version of these RPM's or if there's another way to get our CAC readers working again with Firefox and Thunderbird?

Relevant Background Info:
Installed Packages:

Could a renamed kernel module be part of the problem? What do you make of the following information?

Find library dependencies:
[root@inet3 ~]# ldd /usr/lib64/pcsc/drivers/ifd-ccid.bundle/Contents/Linux/libccid.so
linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007fff41bff000)
libusb-0.1.so.4 => /usr/lib64/libusb-0.1.so.4 (0x00007f52a37fd000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007f52a35e1000)
libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f52a3268000)
/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x000000374b400000)
[root@inet3 ~]# locate linux-vdso.so
[root@inet3 ~]# locate vdso.so
[root@inet3 ~]#

There is no module named "linux-vdso.so". It looks like there was a name change that broke the libccid.so dependencies. I tried creating links within "/lib/modules/" named linux-vdso.so pointing to vdso.so but it still isn't working. I've unloaded the module within Firefox (and Thunderbird) preferences within the [Security Devices] manager. Then tried adding it back using the [Load] button and specifying the coolkey library again but it's still not working.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Smart Card Authentication In RHEL6?

Mar 2, 2011

I have recently installed RHEL6 BETA on my desktop. the login page is somewhat different from RHEL5.4. I can see 3 option

1) Log into session with smart card authentication
2) Log into session with fingreprint
3) Log into session with username & password.

By default only first option is active. If I press cancel, then only I can get the options for user & other.Then if I am selecting my user account and giving the password, nothing is coming. The screen is just flicking & coming back to original. No authentication failure can be seen.

Fedora :: Firefox And Adobe Reader 9.1.2 - How To Set Path

Oct 4, 2009

I have successfully installed Adobe Reader 9.1. It shows up in firefox as a plugin properly. It does not show up in edit->preferences as an Application (not sure if that matters). However when I click on a PDF to download, I get an error in the browser:

"Could not launch Adobe Reader 9.1.2. Please make sure it exists in PATH variable in the environment. If the problem persists, please reinstall the application."

I put the /opt/Adobe/Reader9/bin in my PATH in ~/.bashrc and even rebooted to make sure all was set. I still get the same message. Where do I set my PATH to make this work?

Fedora Security :: Install A CAC Reader To Use With DoD?

Oct 6, 2010

I've looked through a few websites looking for a way to install a CAC reader to use with DoD. I would think that Fedora nee Redhat would support this out of the box, but it appears not to be the case.It appears to need pcscd (with possible restarts on login), coolkey, and various other packages, and DoD certs 11 through 26.What is the easiest way to get the CAC working? I know Linux can do it. The Air Force developed a live CD which recognizes the CAC reader by default.

Fedora :: Loading Modules To Work With Card Reader Using F13?

Aug 7, 2010

I found a solution to my card reader problem in a another fedora post but when I type the code in terminal I get:
all config files need.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
How to write this code so I wont get this error and I can load these modules and also how to edit the modprobe.conf.

The code is below, using fedora 13.
You must load these two modules to work with card reader.
First : Remove the card from the Reader!
AS superuser type in console :
1. /sbin/modprobe tifm_core <enter>
2. /sbin/modprobe tifm_sd <enter>

If you want to automate these modules loading do the following :
edit the /etc/modprobe.conf file
add these :
alias mmc_core tifm_core
alias mmc_card tifm_sd

Fedora Hardware :: Acer Aspire One - Built-in Card Reader?

Jan 1, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire One running Fedora 10.The Aspire One has a built in multi-format memory card reader compatible with SDHC, XD, Memory Stick Pro and MMC cards, however the card reader is only detected during bootup if a card is inserted otherwise the device isn't detected, the relevant drivers aren't loaded and the card reader doesn't work.

In other words if Fedora is booted without a card in the reader and I then want to use the card reader I have to insert a card and reboot in order to use it, after which cards can be inserted & removed and are detected and automounted with no problems.When the card reader is working lsmod shows the following modules are loaded.


If the laptop is booted without a card in the reader none this shows up. I've also tried manually loading the mmc_core, mmc_block, sdhci, memstick & jmb38x_ms modules to see if this kicks the reader into life but it doesn't. Is there a way of forcing the detection of this device during bootup?

Ubuntu Security :: Make Smart PDF Submission Form Work With TOR?

Jul 29, 2010

One of my friends wants to make a submission in the following Smart PDF online submission form:


But whenever he loads the url it opens Adobe acrobat reader which I assume will bypass TOR because the form requires Javascript to be enabled. The form will not submit unless javascript is enabled.

So how can my friend submit the adobe smart pdf form with javascript enabled while still being anonymous with TOR?

If it's not possible with TOR, what other free services could my friend use?

Fedora Security :: Still No Security Patched Firefox 3.5.1 In Yum / Get That?

Jul 18, 2009

Firefox 3.5 has a critical java script vulnerability as noted in the recent news. I had to manually update to 3.5.1 using the mozilla tarball because there's still no Firefox 3.5.1 in Fedora Updates or even Fedora Updates Testing repositories. Is this normal? I didn't want to resort to using the mozilla one because now I can't use flash (my system is 64 bit and mozilla only seems to offer a 32bit tar file of Firefox) and having two Firefoxs means dealing with the ProfileManager, separate bookmarks and so on.

I'm trying to find out if I'm just looking in the wrong place, I tried the normal mirrors for "updates" for Fedora 11 and then updates-testing and also the baseurl for "updates" to get rid of the mirror update delay. None of them seem to have 3.5.1 ?

Ubuntu :: 9.04 - CAC Reader Not Working In Firefox

Debian Hardware :: Card Reader Won't Mount?
