Windows Domain Card Logon

Windows Domain Card Logon is a Windows Logon authentication system provider based on smart cards / tokens with PKI support. The provider is intended for execution of the two-factor authentication of Windows domain users. The authentication is based on possession of a secure key keeper (smart card or token) with private keys and knowledge of the PIN-code for access it.

In particular, the software supports smart cards «Social Card» and «GOST Key Keeper» for secure users authentication in a Windows domain.
