How to use dell latitude e7240 Contactless smart card reader ?

I recently purchase a new notebook Dell Latitude E7240. It comes with smart card reader slot and contactless smart card reader. I have no idea whether this built-in things really working or ready to work. I browse everywhere in my notebook, but there is no software installed except for the driver stated as follow:
Aladdin IFD/VR Handler
MS Usbccid Smartcard Reader WUDF
Rainbow ikey Enumerator
Rainbow ikey virtual reader

I am thinking of using it as authentication. Let say, I want to use it to authenticate a specific web page.
What software do I need ?

For a start, I would like to just read my smartcard and display whatever data stored inside it. Later once it done, then I can extend it to use the data as authentication to my webpage.

I don't have a Belgian eID card to experiment with, so I can't provide you with specific instructions.

But here's a simple example using the Google eidlib library to access information on Belgian EID cards:

And here is a link to the Belgian EID site, which has tools and instructions for developers who wish to use the eID for authentication.

You should have some software that came with the system:  Dell Control Point (or Control Vault, maybe).  If not, contact Dell support you obtain the needed software.  

Here's information on how, for example, to enroll a smart card and configure preboot authentication using the smartcard reader:

Here are some articles you may find useful for your remaining questions:

Process for smart-card enabling a web site depends on the hosting platform.  What hosting platform do you use?

Sorry for the delay. I just back from long leave. My staff actually had tested with 2 softwares,
ie, using EMV Card Browser and CardPeek. (using smartcard slot, not using contactless smartcard yet)

The software did detect my smart card. However it display something which I don't understand at all what the infomation is all about. Please refer to attached doc file.

Perhaps the info is there but maybe still required sort of translator or decryptor.

That's the Answer To Reset (ATR) message returned by an ISO/IEC 7816 compliant card following a cold reset.  It tells you how to communicate with the card.  

Now we also know that you're specifically talking about a Belgian eID card.

A smart card is not just an RFID card.  An RFID card is basically just a serial number you can read electronically.  That's not the case with a smart card - it is a little computer.  It has an OS, and contains applications and data.

Here's a blog post that deals specifically using an eID card to authenticate to a web site using Glassfish/OpenSSO/OpenDS - I hope you find it useful.

Gary, I had to admit that the links didn't help me much. My knowledge on this is very limited.
I really don't know apart from what I had posted on 13 December 2014. My notebook can detect my card already but how to display the stored info ? Can you please tell me step by step ? Is there any 3rd party tools that really extract the data from my card ?
