This is often preferred on secure networks with require a valid certificate for users and/or computers. Which users and computers that are in need of certificates and what level of access they should receive is controlled through groups in the customer’s Active Directory.

Certificate Services offers a complete lifecycle management for certificates stored on smart cards as an add-on feature, which makes it easy for companies to start using them in their organization.
MULTIPLE USAGES FOR SMART CARDS
To maximize the usage of the smart cards you can include other services, which perhaps already exists in your organization, such as adding the functionality of a passing card or print picture and personnel information to the card’s exterior and use them as a business identity card. It is also possible to add a magnetic strip or create a solution with a USB memory stick.
SIMPLE SMART CARD ADMINISTRATION
To simplify the process when a problem occurs with a users smart card the administration tools verifies the card and suggests the steps that it believes the administrator wants to perform. If the card is locked the administrator will be transferred to the unlock procedure, if the certificate on the card is about to expire the program suggest to renew it. If the smart card is revoked the program will tell you.
