Sun Ray Software 5.3 and Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 3.4 now include a completely new and improved smart card software stack for Sun Ray 3 Series Clients and clients installed with Oracle Virtual Desktop Client 3.1, according to a post by Chris Kawalek. This new smart card software stack allows end users to quickly and easily login to their virtual desktops and applications, Kawalek writes, and offers users an even more secure virtual desktop environment by providing the capability of using two-factor authentication. Furthermore, the new smart card software stack allows administrators to easily deploy smart card solutions with Sun Ray 3 Series thin clients or Oracle Virtual Desktop Client on PC, Mac or Linux desktops in their environment, according to Kawalek. With the use of a smart card, users can automatically launch their sessions without the need to enter their login credentials multiple times, saving time and increasing productivity, he concludes.
