what do you mean by PKI Login

That is actually a question for you: what do you mean by that? PKI is a system for handling (in the widest sense) digital certificates. It's most often used for encryption, and could be used for authentication as well.

Are you saying you want the user to provide her certificate for cryptographically strong authentication?

In that case you need to find a way for the user's certificate to be uploaded to the server, so that the server can verify it. What kind of client is this - web app? Swing? Something else? How is it accessing the server?
