issue with Common Access Cards in Mac

It has been over 6 months since the Horizon client stopped working with common access cards in Mac. It is a known issue and the work around has not worked for any of my users. We are forced to use the web client which is not great.VMware being such a large company should not let issues go this long without be fixed. It is insane with the amount of money they make they can't get it done. Has anyone found a work around that actually works or knows anything about this issue?

Could you please work with your Horizon administrator to open a bug with VMware? We would love to see logs and figure this out!

Thanks.

We have had the same issue...

Apple deprecated Tokend from Apple Operating Systems and replaced it with CTK. I was tole the only workaround for using smartcard on Macs is to use a middleware like Charismathics (CSSI_5.0.3_PIV) on the Mac client and Charismathics (CSTC PIV 5.2.2) on the agent machine to make PIV cards work. There is a feature request to use CTK in a future release of the Mac Client but there is no ETA at this time.
