    Hi all-

    I have very sensitive data on my Mac and wish to implement smartcard-based security. Can I just get a brand-new card and a compatible reader and go? Or is there something special I need to do with the card and\or Mac?

    For those of us who are new to the idea of securing our computers with smart cards, can you recommend a brand to go with for a reader and card?

    I frequently take my laptop to work (emergency department), and would like to quickly secure it when I leave my laptop. Would be nice to set it up so I can just remove the card and it automatically locks the system until I reinsert it (I presume this is how smartcards traditionally work).
