    PIV PKI smart card - LRC failure




      My company has an internal PIV smart card product and I've been trying to get it working with McAfee EEPC 6.0.2 pre-boot authentication.


      When I enter my PIN a progress bar appears and a few seconds later an error message is shown: "EE080000 - LRC failure while communicating with smart card." Does anyone know what this means? I get a different error message if I use a card with no certificates, so I'm fairly confident EEPC is at least talking to the smart card in some way.



      Is there a way to enable some kind of logging for thepre-boot environment? MfeEpe.log only seems to cover events that occur after Windows has booted.


      I've added the user certificate to Active Directory, synchronized AD to EE in ePO, and sent a client wakeup. The user is assigned a user-based policy with Token type: PIV PKI. Looking in MfeEpe.log (per https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB67529) I can confirm the correct certificate has been sent to the ePO agent - I verified the subject key identifier.


      For readers, I've tried using both an Omnikey 3121 and a GemPC USB-SL with the same result.
