Yes. Microsoft and Cable Labs are very interested, and in in on the
process as is Sun, MIT, Heimdal and some others.

I sure hope so, but they have not said anything that I know of.
Heimdal has PKINIT that is said to work with Windows. I am trying
this today as we have a pilot project to try smartcards with windows
and have about 20 of the GemPlus cards. They work for login.
So I am trying to see what can be done with Linux and Solaris today.
Its a real struggle, as it wil take Heimdal, OpenSC, Muscle/PCSC, and
some other packages. Not all readers and smart cards are supported
either! Its a mess.
