Windows 7: Convert a simple usb to a smartcard

Convert a simple usb to a smartcard

Hello everyone,

I'm searching for a tool that can make a usb flashdrive transform into a smartcard. I'm a simple student that wants to know more about smartcards and experiment with it.
Is there a tool that can do this? I prefer a free tool. Google didn't give me much results so I'm hoping this forum can help me out with this.

Hello A Guy,

Thank you for your reply. SafeHouse is a product to encrypt your hardrive or usb and although it's true that it can convert a simple usb to a smart card, it doesn't work with other things like the smartcard login function within the Active Directory. SafeHouse was my first try to make this happen.

Are there any other products that can do the same thing as SafeHouse, but can also work just like a normal smartcard?
