I'm on a dell inspiron 5584 laptop with Arcolinux with zen kernel 6.0.8, Plasma 5.26.3.
When I try to access the site It don't get the certificate, and don't ask for the pin.
I'm not familiar with this type of devices on linux, I used them only on windows, so I installed VMWare and run a win10 VM, but on the removable devices I can't find the smartcard reader, so it not work. I checked the device on another windows machine and it work, Is it possilbe to make it work, at last by the VM?
Any advice?

I am not familiar with it either.

There is the arch wiki to check out.

It may be something similar as an eid reader we use in Belgium.

It reads our identity card to be able to login to official sites.

We have an extension we can install in firefox, google chrome etc...

Did you look into that?
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google

It is something similar (we use the healt card instead of the identity card), but usually not need browser plugin.
According to arch wiki
I installed ccid and opensc, now I can use it inside the VM, but without it still not be recognized by the brower.
I think I'm missing somenthing.
