Windows 8.1 does not prompt for a smart card when the "Interactive Logon: Require Smart Card" Group Policy Object is enabled

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable and then push the "Interactive Logon: Require Smart Card" Group Policy Object to Windows 8.1 clients.
  • On a Windows 8.1 client, you go to the Windows logon screen.

In this scenario, Windows prompts you for the standard user name and password credentials instead of requesting that a smart card be presented.
