Is it possible to put a smart card user certificate (Windows) on a SIM card? (SIM card already has telecom info on it).

I'm using Win 2012 and have tried, but I am getting this error "smart card cannot perform the requested operation..."

If not, what smart card do I need to have to install a smart card user certificate? I will use smart card to log in to Windows VPN.

  • Because this is about pairing a SIM card with Win 2012, I would move this to ServerFault, but this question might get closed pretty quickly there because it is confusing. Did the error you get happen because you tried to use a SIM, or was it with the smart card? You will also have to explain a lot more about how you are trying to configure Windows and the smart card. – schroeder May 15 '16 at 14:49
  • What documentation have you read to get smart card authentication to work? – schroeder May 15 '16 at 14:52
  • ok - but you haven't answered the other question I had. You need to walk us through the steps you took. – schroeder May 15 '16 at 20:10

The SIM Card is not able to fulfill the requests sent to it when trying to place a certificate on it. The required commands are not available. Most (nearly all) SIM-Cards are not able to be extended in functionality either.
