pkcs11-tool - utility for managing and using PKCS #11 security tokens
pkcs11-tool [OPTIONS]
The pkcs11-tool utility is used to manage the data objects on smart cards and similar PKCS #11 security tokens. Users can list and read PINs, keys and certificates stored on the token. User PIN authentication is performed for those operations that require it.
--attr-from path Extract information from path (DER-encoded certificate file) and create the corresponding attributes when writing an object to the token. Example: the certificate subject name is used to create the CKA_SUBJECT attribute. --change-pin, -c Change the user PIN on the token --hash, -h Hash some data. --id id, -d id Specify the id of the object to operate on. --init-pin Initializes the user PIN. This option differs from --change-pin in that it sets the user PIN for the first time. Once set, the user PIN can be changed using --change-pin. --init-token Initialize a token: set the token label as well as a Security Officer PIN (the label must be specified using --label). --input-file path, -i path Specify the path to a file for input. --keypairgen, -k Generate a new key pair (public and private pair.) --label name, -a name Specify the name of the object to operate on (or the token label when --init-token is used). --list-mechanisms, -M Display a list of mechanisms supported by the token. --list-objects, -O Display a list of objects. --list-slots, -L Display a list of available slots on the token. --login, -l Authenticate to the token before performing other operations. This option is not needed if a PIN is provided on the command line. --mechanism mechanism, -m mechanism Use the specified mechanism for token operations. See -M for a list of mechanisms supported by your token. --module mod Specify a PKCS#11 module (or library) to load. --moz-cert path, -z path Test a Mozilla-like keypair generation and certificate request. Specify the path to the certificate file. --output-file path, -o path Specify the path to a file for output. --pin pin, -p pin Use the given pin for token operations. WARNING: Be careful using this option as other users may be able to read the command line from the system or if it is embedded in a script. This option will also set the --login option. --set-id id, -e id Set the CKA_ID of the object. --show-info, -I Display general token information. --sign, -s Sign some data. --slot id Specify the id of the slot to use. --slot-description description Specify the description of the slot to use. --slot-index index Specify the index of the slot to use. --token-label label Specify the label of token. Will be used the first slot, that has the inserted token with this label. --so-pin pin Use the given pin as the Security Officer PIN for some token operations (token initialization, user PIN initialization, etc). The same warning as --pin also applies here. --test, -t Perform some tests on the token. This option is most useful when used with either --login or --pin. --type type, -y type Specify the type of object to operate on. Examples are cert, privkey and pubkey. --verbose, -v Cause pkcs11-tool to be more verbose. NB! This does not affect OpenSC debugging level! To set OpenSC PKCS#11 module into debug mode, set the OPENSC_DEBUG environment variable to a non-zero number. --write-object id, -w path Write a key or certificate object to the token. path points to the DER-encoded certificate or key file. opensc 06/17/2014 PKCS11-TOOL(1)
