Smart Card Access to Apps and Desktops

Available on the Apple App Store today, Citrix Receiver 5.9 adds official support for iOS 7.1 and improved security using SHA2 certificates. It’s a great way to access apps and desktops from anywhere with a great HDX experience.

The  new features enable the use of standard PIV smart cards.

Now you can equip your iPad or iPhone with baiMobile® 301MP or 301MP-L  or Precise Biometrics Tactivo sleeve and use Receiver with either type of smart card. Inserting a smart card and typing a pin provides access to Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environments from anywhere. You can also use your smart card for signing and encryption.

Smart card authentication can be used with NetScaler Gateway 9.x or 10.x, StoreFront 2.1 or 2.5, XenApp 6.5 and above or XenDesktop 5.6 and above in any combination.

Lastly, 5.9 now can be used in environments where a single fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is used for both internal and external access to further simplify XenApp and XenDesktop access.
