  • (2020-04-16) Michael Swetman: For some reason, it is finicky and will lock you out at times saying that you can not use your smart card.
  • (2020-02-04) Matthew Cernich: This extension works great, but only if you have installed all of the proper apps. In order to get this to work you must install the CSSI Smart Card Middleware app by DriveLock and the Smart Card Connector by Google in addition to this extension. Once I installed all three (CSSI Smart Card Middleware Extension and App / Smart Card Connector) I was able to log into any DoD CAC enabled website.
