No, there does not appear to be. I think it could be very useful to
support private keys from smartcards in GnuTLS, but it would perhaps be
even more useful to have generic out-of-process private key handling
(like ssh-agent from OpenSSH does) so that developers could implement a
smartcard-capable private key backend directly as a plugin.
This is a counterpoint to the idea of an external certificate validation
agent, which was at one point fleshed out here:
but that page seems to currently give a 404 error (Simon, the whole
redmine instance seems to be gone -- is this something you already know
Jonathan, do you have a specific smartcard that you would like to support?
