The Dell M6400 Precision workstation laptop has a SmartCard reader installed. The SmartCard can be used with a PIN as an additional form of security when logging into the computer. This ensures no one else can access your computer without the SmartCard and PIN. The SmartCard reader on the Dell M6400 uses both synchronous and asynchronous encryption and decryption methods. This helps to provide additional security between the SmartCard and the reader.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Double-click on "Dell ControlPoint Secutiy Manager," then click on "Settings" next to SmartCard Controller and use the SmartCard Enrollment Wizard that starts up to configure the card with a PIN.

  2. 2

    Insert the SmartCard into the SmartCard reader on the left side of the laptop.

  3. 3

    Enter the PIN for the SmartCard in the dialogue box that pops up, then press "Enter." This will allow you to log in and begin using the computer.
