NAME
       westcos-tool - utility for manipulating data structures on westcos smart cards

SYNOPSIS
       westcos-tool [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
       The westcos-tool utility is used to manipulate the westcos data structures on 2 Ko smart
       cards / tokens. Users can create PINs, keys and certificates stored on the card / token.
       User PIN authentication is performed for those operations that require it.

OPTIONS
       --change-pin, -n
	   Changes a PIN stored on the card. User authentication is required for this operation.

       --certificate file, -t file
	   Write certificate file file in PEM format to the card. User authentication is required
	   for this operation.

       --finalize, -f
	   Finalize the card. Once finalized the default key is invalidated, so PIN and PUK
	   cannot be changed anymore without user authentication.

	   Warning, un-finalized are insecure because PIN can be changed without user
	   authentication (knowledge of default key is enough).

       --generate-key, -g
	   Generate a private key on the card. The card must not have been finalized and a PIN
	   must be installed (ie. the file for ithe PIN must havei been created, see option -i).
	   By default the key length is 1536 bits. User authentication is required for this
	   operation.

       --help, -h
	   Print help message on screen.

       --install-pin, -i
	   Install PIN file in on the card. You must provide a PIN value with -x.

       --key-length length, -l length
	   Change the length of private key. Use with -g.

       --overwrite-key, -o
	   Overwrite the key if there is already a key on the card.

       --pin-value value, -x value
	   Set value of PIN.

       --puk-value value, -y value
	   set value of PUK (or value of new PIN for change PIN command see -n).

       --read-file path, -j path
	   Read the file path from the card. The file is written on disk with name path. User
	   authentication is required for this operation.

       --reader num, -r num
	   Use the given reader. The default is the first reader with a card.

       --unblock-pin, -u
	   Unblocks a PIN stored on the card. Knowledge of the PIN Unblock Key (PUK) is required
	   for this operation.

       -v
	   Causes westcos-tool to be more verbose. Specify this flag several times to enable
	   debug output in the OpenSC library.

       --wait, -w
	   Wait for a card to be inserted.

       --write-file path, -k path
	   Put the file with name path from disk to card. On the card the file is written in
	   path. User authentication is required for this operation.
