It's been done. Both the SmartKey and SmartCard products from
 Datakey do signing key generation at the users workstation,
 not at the CA, or any other central "card personalization

The HP Praesidium equivalent to this, however, requires a
  specialized, expensive "card printer/personalization workstation".

Which would you buy?
