Client Side Smart Card Device Access RRS feed

  • User-1606890983 posted


     Hi there,

    Is it possible to access the windows file system, or lets say the hardware of the client side computer using an aspx web site.

    I don't know how the cookies are implemented and neither am I interested as of now.

    But my application requires me to access the Client Side Hardware (USB based RFID Readers to be precise), so that we can map that reader with the setting in the db saved on the server and manage logical access to the web site.

    In this case the access to the site will be dependent on 3 parameters.

    UserId, Password and the Smart Card Reader Unique Id.

    I know how to take the Unique Id of the smart card reader using a desktop application, but am unable to access it using a web app.

    Maybe something in activeX or something.

     Please do let me know if any ones knows how to make this happen.


    Thanks in Advance
