Ya know, that smart card is going to have a *really* hard time authenticating
against your AD servers if your AD servers are firewalled off from the majority
of the internet.  If you do something like this:

deny all
allow from <your first address range here>
allow from <your second/etc address range>
allow from <the address range of their lab>

they'll have a hard time logging in from anywhere else.

Odd that your security guys were worried about the card logging in from
elsewhere, but didn't suggest this right off the bat...
