Does PUM work with PKI or PIV types of authentication mechanisms?

That is a great question. There is a section in the documentation that
talks about integration of PAM with Novell Access Manager. Through that
configuration, you can require NAM to need a PIV/X.509 certificate for
authentication, and then pass credentials to login to PAM. Without
using an access manager product, I'm not sure you could get PIV
integration.

I think PIV cards should work today, although, I don't see it currently documented. I'll see if I can find more info on this and report back.

With the release of PAM 3.1, there is support for integrating PAM with NetIQ Advanced Authentication (NAAF). It appears that PKI is a supported method in Advanced Authentication, but is not currently listed as a Supported Authentication Method in PAM. I haven't personally tried it yet though.. There is certainly potential to have this supported. I'm not sure if it's currently supported though.
