CACs and Personal Computers

Want to use your Common Access Card (CAC) to log onto AKO/DKO from your personal computer?
You need four things:

Where can you find this information?
MilitaryCAC Public site developed and maintained by CW3 (Chief Warrant Officer Three) Michael J. Danberry
Additional resources from the Military CAC site and on Facebook

AKO log in needed for the following links:
Resources for Apple users
Resources for Linux users

Don't want to do a total install or do not have the requirement to sign documents or use DTS?
Try LPS (Lightweight Portable Security) which allows you to use your CAC to log on to CAC enabled sites. Lightweight Portable Security (LPS) creates a secure end node from trusted media on almost any Intel-based computer (PC or Mac). LPS boots a thin Linux operating system from a CD without mounting a local hard drive.

The website was developed and is maintained by CW3 (Chief Warrant Officer Three) Michael J. Danberry. has been online since 9 November 2007 and has grown into a large website for CAC related information and support. CW3 Danberry is the content provider for the AKO CAC Reference Center.

Have you installed a CAC reader on your PC? Do you have recommendations and lessons learned for others?

Links used (for those whose cannot access links to click through):
