Wrapping SmartcardCredentialProvider and adding pin remaining field, Vista / Windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi! I am working on rewriting our gina logon system to something similar in Windows Vista. As a first step i would like to do is to extend the default SmartCardCredentialProvider and add information about the number of pin attemts left on a card, and show the name of  the reader the card is in. The language used is C++.

    I have gone trough the SampleWrapExistingcredentialProvider and the documentation that comes with the samples, but these are sadly rather basic and does not cover more than the absolute basics. Is it even possible to do this with a wrapper? Or do i need to write my own code for
    listing all readers, picking up cards and credentials from them and so on? I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.
