USB Smart Card Tokens Plug-n-Play

Alexey Korostelev


This page says

«insertion or removal of Smart Card Reader is not supported after an ICA session is established».

Is it possible to implement the scenario

Users log on to their local machine -> Start ICA session -> Plug in the Smart Card Reader -> Insert the Smart Card –> The user will be able to use the Smart Card inside the session?


Our users really need this feature.

The new version has some additions around this area -  Check this out



Enhancement on smart card support (Technical Preview)

With this release, Citrix Workspace app supports the Plug and Play functionality for smart card reader.

When you insert a smart card, the smart card reader detects the smart card in the server and client. You can plug and play multiple cards at the same time, and all of these are detected.

To configure this feature:

Navigate to the <ICAROOT>/config/module.ini folder.

Go to the SmartCard section.

Set the DriverName= VDSCARDV2.DLL.
