So after meaning to play with Smart Cards in greater detail for some time we’ve just received a set of cards and accessories from Smartcard Focus (http://www.smartcardfocus.com/) including….
- Gemalto GemPC Shell Token V2 (IDBridge K30) (a USB dongle style Smart Card reader which you can see in the screen shot sequence below)

- Gemalto IDPrime .NET card – just your standard Smart Card
- Omnikey 3121 – just your standard Smart Card reader

So time to get on with the guide (which also shows you which downloads are needed from the links)!
