Aloaha accesses per default the connected Smart Card Reader via the Windows PC/SC or CCID driver. In some cases it might be required to use the reader via CT-API. For example in cases that no PC/SC or CCID driver exists. That is the case for most health terminals used in the german health system.
To be able to use CT-API it is required that a recent version of the Aloaha Smartcard Connector is installed. If you find the file AloahaCSPPlugin.exe in <common files>\Aloaha your Version is recent enough to be switched to CT-API.
To activate CT-API there have to be entries in the file CTAPIINI.ini in <program files>\wrocklage and entries in the registry.
[HID OMNIKEY 8751 e-Health LAN]
Please note the the settings section is required. The rest Aloaha will try to fill in automatically.
Once the above seetings are done you you re-logged on into your machine you will see your CT-API eHealth Terminal in the Aloaha Systray as shown below:

Even though any CTAPI Reader should work currently ONLY the ORGA 6041 eGK and OMNIKEY 8751 eHealth terminals have been accredited to work perfectly with Aloaha. More will follow on request!
Windows Logon with e-Health Terminal
Obviously the Aloaha Smartlogon does support Windows Logon via CTAPI based Smartcard Reader. That means that it is possible to use a HID 8751 or Orga 6041 eHealth Terminal to logon to with the german HBA (Health Professional Card).
Per default the e-Health Terminal is NOT connected to the Windows Logon Credentials Provider. To activate that you need to create the following entry in our CTAPIini.ini in your installation folder:
After you create the key and set your credentials via Aloaha GUI you can logon via the Aloaha Tile as shown below:
