Disable Smart Card Pairing UI


This script can be used to disable the Smart Card Pairing UI for each user.


This was created as a solution for the "Allow Smart Card Pairing" option in the SmartCard Configuration Profile payload not working and allowing the user to pair their Smart Card after the profile was installed. Since the sc_auth command cannot be ran as root, this script will pull the username of the current user and run the command to disable the pairing UI as each user at login (or whenever the trigger is set to run) I have also created an Extension Attribute to pull the status of the Smart Card Pairing UI which can be used for a smart group or scoping.
