Mac information:

On Mac OS, there is no Microsoft CAPI/CSP. All native Apple applications (Mac Logon, Safari, mail client and so on) use a Mac proprietary cryptographic architecture called Tokend. This is also used by Microsoft’s Office package for Mac OS. Several other third party applications, such as Adobe Acrobat, Mozilla Firefox & Thunderbird use the PKCS#11 security module.

For the Mac version, Gemalto’s PKCS#11 library is the PKCS#11 security module + Tokend.

Tokend is included with the PKCS#11 library and installed transparently at the same time. Tokend is Mac native software that enables smart cards to appear as keychains on a Mac. Thanks to Tokend you can do the following operations with your smart card:

  • View the contents of your smart card using Keychain Access.
  • Lock or unlock the smart card keychain.
  • Log on to a Mac using the .NET smart card.
  • Use the Safari browser to view secure web sites.
  • Use Mail (Mac’s native e-mail program) to encrypt and/or digitally sign a messsage.
