card_eventmgr - PCSC-Lite Event Manager SYNTAX
card_eventmgr [debug] [[no]daemon] [timeout=<msecs>] [config_file=<filename>] [kill] [pidfile=<pidfile>] DESCRIPTION
card_eventmgr is a smart card monitoring tool that listen to the status of the card reader and dispatch actions on several events. card_eventmgr can be used for several actions: like screen lock on card removal. Three events are supported: card insertion, card removal and timeout on removed card. Actions are specified in a configuration file. OPTIONS
debug Enable debugging output. [no]daemon Runs in background if daemon or in foreground if nodaemon (default). If debug is unset, the program dettaches itself from the tty. timeout=<msecs> Set polling timeout in milliseconds. Defaults to 1000 (1 second). config_file=<configuration file> Sets de configuration file. Default value is /etc/pam_pkcs11/card_eventmgr.conf. pidfile=<pidfile> Store the card_eventmgr process ID (pid) in the file pidfile. kill Read a process id from pidfile and kill that process. You must use the argument pidfile=<pidfile> to use kill. FILES
/etc/pam_pkcs11/card_eventmgr.conf EXAMPLES
To run this program the standard way type: card_eventmgr Alternatively you can specify options: card_eventmgr debug nodaemon timeout=500 config_file=$HOME/.card_eventmgr.conf If you want to start and stop card_eventmgr automatically in an X11 session you can create a ~/.xsession file containing: # start the card autolock card_eventmgr pidfile=$HOME/ # start Gnome or something else /usr/bin/x-session-manager # kill the card autolock card_eventmgr kill pidfile=$HOME/ BUGS
Some applications like xscreensaver-command may fail due to external events (eg: try to unlock an unlocked session). In this case, the command incorrectly returns error code. AUTHORS

pkcs11_inspect - print certificate contents SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/pam_pkcs11/pkcs11_inspect [debug] [config_file=filename] DESCRIPTION
pkcs11_inspect uses the pam_pkcs11 library infrastructure to obtain the content of a certificate and display it. pkcs11_inspect uses the same configuration file and arguments as the pam_pkcs11(5) PAM module. It loads defined mapper modules, and uses them to look into the certificate for required entries, that is, ms_mapper looks for ms UPN entries, and so forth. When a mapper module finds a proper entry in the certificate, it converts to UTF-8 and prints it to stdout. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: config_file=fileame Set the configuration file. The default value is /etc/security/pam_pkcs11/pam_pkcs11.conf. debug Enable debugging output. As it uses the same configuration file as pam_pkcs11(5), all of the pam_pkcs11 options are available. Some of these options make no sense in a non-PAM environment, and are therefore ignored. Some mapper options (mapfile, ignorecase) have no effect on certificate contents, and they are ignored as well. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. pkcs11_inspect prints on stdout all certificate contents that are found for mappers. 1 An error occurred. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using pkcs_inspect The following example runs the pkcs_inspect command without any options: % pkcs11_inspect Example 2 Using pkcs_inspect with Options The following example runs the pkcs_inspect command with options: % pkcs11_inspect debug config_file=${HOME}/.pam_pkcs11.conf FILES
