GlobalProtect Linux Smart Card

There is a Smart Card solution that uses pkcs#11 and middlware that provides OS communication to the card. Is there a way to use this certificate from the card for GlobalProtect authentication?

GP is looking for a cert in a specific location, but it is not possible to extract it from the Smart Card and import for GP (


Is this supported at all? If so, is there any information available?

I am having the same issue on CentOS 7 using pcsc, Coolkey, and sometimes OpenSC.  GP agent is looking in a specific directory for pfx and dat files I believe, but I cannot get a p12 cert exported from my smart card to import.  I would like GP to use my smart card for credentials. Any success regarding this issue, if it is even supported?
