With a PCKS#11 standard implementation, you can use a PIN smartcard for a MFA (multi-factor authentication) sign on. Commonly, there is a PKCS#11 interface in a webbrowser software to access secure sites.

For programmatic access, there is for example the PyKCS11 written in Python.

Is there an open source Golang implementation?

    Did you eg see this repository which popped up for me after searching for "pkcs11 golang binding"? (I have no actual experience with neither Go, nor PKCS11 nor this project in particular, thus this is no answer) – SEJPM Nov 16 '18 at 12:59
