Use DoD CAC Smart Card with Google Chrome in Linux

There are a few steps you need to take in order to use your CAC / smart card with google chrome in Linux.  Here are the steps I took...

First, install all the DoD root certs by following the directions in this post.


Then install some packages...

PSCS Smart Card Libraries, tools and such:

sudo dnf install pcsc-lite -y

sudo dnf install perl-pcsc -y

sudo dnf install pcsc-tools -y

sudo dnf install ccid -y

sudo dnf install opensc -y


Now install coolkey

sudo dnf install coolkey -y

Now make sure chrome is closed and run the following command from your home directory:

modutil -dbdir sql:.pki/nssdb/ -add "CAC Module" -libfile /usr/lib64/pkcs11/libcoolkeypk11.so

That is it... You should now be able to open Google Chrome and use your CAC for authentication on websites.
