Smart card authentication

I need to figure out how to allow users to authenticate to webi with a smart card. I'm using BOE XIr2 with Tomcat on Linux, and I have documentation for using Tomcat with smart cards, but I don't see anything in Business Objects documentation or the forums about smart cards, or linking a particular user's certificate from the card to a defined user account with a set of Business Objects permissions. Any suggestions?

    A smart card is typically integrated with AD. You should be able to set up AD auth or vintela SSO. I've released a new doc you can search for vintela enterprises in the SMP portal. Also the XI 3.x admin guides show how to configure kerberos.
