Steps to reproduce

According Windows Smart Card Minidriver Specification
Version 7.07 Edge should also support external pin dialog and doesn’t display standard Windows security PIN dialog. But it doesn’t work in Edge.
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Install a mini driver with external Pin type defined. CardGetProperty CP_CARD_PIN_INFO returns SECRET_TYPE as ExternalPinType.
  2. Access an SSL client protected web site using the minidriver smart card inserted in a reader
  3. Edge opens internal Windows cryptography PIN dialog. Please see attachment. Though this dialog also in not correct because doesn’t allow to enter PIN dialog.

Expected Results:
Edge should allow mini driver to handle correctly external PIN dialog into CardAuthenticateEx function and doesn’t display standard Pin dialog. Or at least display it correctly.
