WebDAV Client Certificate File With Hardware Token?

Hi!

I'm interested in using WebDAV with client certificate authentication using private keys on a hardware token. This presumably would require use of a PKCS library or integration with the Windows CAPI subsystem to interact with the hardware. Firstly, is currently a way to use WinSCP in this manner? If not, is there anything fundamentally preventing development of this capability (which I could look into).

Thanks!
Bryan

WinSCP does not support this atm.

WinSCP uses neon library for HTTPS/WebDAV.

You can look into it, if there's a way to make it support HW tokens.

Hello,

I found there is support for smartcards via the pkcs11 wrapper interface:
Smartcard-based client certificates are also supported via a PKCS#11 wrapper interface.

It would be nice if WinSCP would support the pkcs11-interface.

Best regards
Oliver
