AWS Directory Service now supports smart card authentication with AD Connector for Amazon WorkSpaces in 5 additional AWS Regions

Starting today, you can use Common Access Card (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart cards to authenticate users into Amazon WorkSpaces through your self-managed Active Directory (AD) and AWS Directory Service AD Connector in US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Sydney) Regions. Additionally, you can now use the AWS Management Console to configure smart card authentication with AWS Directory Service. Previously, smart card authentication with AD Connector for Amazon WorkSpaces was only supported in the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region and could only be configured through the AWS Directory Service API or CLI.
