I'm not sure what the USB/CD suggestion was, actually. You just can't stick a cert somewhere and "autorun" it into the smartcard service. I got some suggestions offline, but they were not exactly what I was looking for. Looks like I'll just have to go the hardware route.

FWIW, Tim & are seeking different variations on the same theme.
Since I work mostly in virtual machines, I need something that's
I *can* set up a dedicated machine to get USB ports, but that's a huge

I'm no expert, hardly, but I imagine you can do something custom with
mini-CDs, CDs, floppys, or USB keys that hold the certificate data,
and just set the authenticating machine to run the auto-play through
the authenticating program, with the added benefit that they can
function like a USB dongle-lock, so the computers won't function if
they don't have the cd/usb key/etc.
Just my two cents

Has anyone worked with a software Smart Card emulation package they
recommend? The goal is to test different "client authentication"purchase
Windows smart card implementations without having to go out and
the actual physical hardware (and cards) to do so. Basically, I wantit
something that will let me offer up a cert to a server/service as if
were a "smart card."
