This provides an overview of how to prepare Citrix StoreFront, Citrix Desktop Lock, and Desktop Appliances to work with smart cards.
These instruction apply to the version of Desktop Lock included with Citrix Receiver for Windows Enterprise 3.4. To configure the version of Desktop Lock included with Citrix 4.2, see the instructions in Receiver Desktop Lock.
If Citrix Desktop Lock is installed on the user device, a consistent smart card removal policy is enforced. For example, if the Windows smart card removal policy is set to Force logoff for the desktop, the user must log off from the user device as well, regardless of the Windows smart card removal policy set on it. This ensures that the user device is not left in an inconsistent state. This behavior applies only to user devices with the Desktop Lock, not the Desktop Viewer.
