On Mac OS X 10.8 the certificates on the token are accessible via Keychain Access, Mail utilities and built-in VPN client, but after updating to 10.9 I've got an issue that certificates on the token are not listed in built-in VPN client (when selecting authentication parameters) though they are visible in Keychain Access utility.

Nothing has changed architecturally from the Apple side on Tokend or on the ability of any Apple services (ie. VPN) to utilize the Keychain APIs which is how they get access to Smart Cards supported with a Tokend.  Have you updated the Tokend for 10.9 using the updated installers posted ?  There was a security CVE addressed and implemented in the new updates as well.

Please capture logs before and during the transactions and submit with a ticket, so we can look into it.  We may uncover something from there.
