Solved it!

On another thread regarding certificates, I found that since Evolution uses Mozilla's libnss, Mozilla's certificate database can be imported into Evolution by copying the files cert8.db, key3.db and secmod.db from ~/.mozilla/<user>/<random>/ to ~/.evolution. I did this at first to import the root certificates into Evolution in order to validate digitally signed messages. I was very surprised, however, when Evolution prompted me for the PIN on the hardware device!

Although this is an interesting and functional workaround, I would like to see a user interface to access hardware devices within Evolution and not have to go through all the hassle of recopying files from Mozilla to Evolution. Any plans on this?

None at present that i'm aware of, but it would make sense.  The problem with much of libnss is its basically non-documented, etc.

Its nice to know this workaround exists though.
