Given that TB already has smartcard support it would be easy if the new
code just makes use of that code.  Of course the code then needs to
touch the NSS part of Mozilla and can't just go with RNP.  That would be
a more integrated solution than any other hack.

Right, separate software will be required but that is the usual case
with smartcards.  For example Scute can be used to provide card services
via GnuPG (and also allow for on-disk GnuPG.  Note that GnuPG 2.3 will
be much more flexible in regard to smartcard use and how it can interact
with TB via Scute.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
