Default encrypted swipe card login?

Hi all , I was just wondering if anyone knows how to (or if its possible) to set up an OpenBSD system to use an encrypted key log in?

Idealy, an encrypted swipe card/usb key or similar or some package to use the print reader on an lenovo laptop.

Thanks

There is the security/libfprint library available in packages/ports. Whether this works with Lenovo hardware is unknown by me.

The softraid(4) driver's CRYPTO discipline can use an external storage device, such as a USB "stick", as a key. See the -k, "keydisk" function in the bioctl(8) man page, as well as the misc@ archives where the use of keydisks with bioctl has been discussed. To get you started, some of these postings might be helpful.

I use softraid to encrypt /home on my netbook that travels with me, but I do not use a keydisk, just a passphrase.
