NAME
smartcard - overview of smart card features on Solaris DESCRIPTION
The smart card framework provides a mechanism to abstract the details of interacting with smart cards and smart cardreaders (called card terminals). The framework is based on the OpenCard Framework V1.1 (OCF) with Sun extensions to allow OCF to operate in a multi-user envi- ronment. The core OCF software protocol stack is implemented as a system service daemon. This implementation allows smart cards and card terminals to be shared cooperatively among many different clients on the system while providing access control to the smart card and card terminal resources on a per-UID basis. An event dispatcher is provided to inform clients of events occuring on the card and at the card terminal, such as card insertion and card removal. A high-level authentication mechanism is provided to allow clients to perform smart card-based authentications without requiring knowledge of specific card or reader authentication features. A set of applet administration tools is provided for JavaCards that support downloading Java applets (although applet build tools are not provided). Administration of the smart card framework is provided with the smartcard(1M) command line administration utility and the smartcardguiad- min(1) GUI administration tool. Support the following card terminal is provided: o Dallas iButton Serial Reader (see ocf_ibutton(7D)) Additional card terminals can be supported by implementing smart card terminal interfaces in a shared library. Support for several smart cards is provided: o Schlumberger Cyberflex Access JavaCard o Schlumberger MicroPayflex o Dallas Semiconductor Java iButton JavaCard Each of the supported cards has a complete set of OCF card services that implement the necessary functionality for authentication and secure storage of data. For the two supported JavaCards, an authentication and secure data storage applet is provided that can be loaded into these cards with the supplied applet administration tools. See smartcard(1M). A PAM smart card module is provided to allow PAM clients to use smart card-based authentication. See pam_smartcard(5) CDE is able to use the PAM smart card module for dtlogin and dtsession authentication. CDE also uses the smart card framework event dis- patcher to listen for events on the card terminal and provide corresponding visual feedback to the user. SEE ALSO

NAME
piv-tool - smart card utility for HSPD-12 PIV cards SYNOPSIS
piv-tool [OPTIONS] The piv-tool utility can be used from the command line to perform miscellaneous smart card operations on a HSPD-12 PIV smart card as defined in NIST 800-73-3. It is intened for use with test cards only. It can be used to load objects, and generate key pairs, as well as send arbitrary APDU commands to a card after having authenticated to the card using the card key provided by the card vendor. OPTIONS
--serial Print the card serial number derived from the CHUID object, if any. Output is in hex byte format. --name, -n Print the name of the inserted card (driver) --admin argument, -A argument Authenticate to the card using a 2DES or 3DES key. The argument of the form {A|M}:ref:alg is required, were A uses "EXTERNAL AUTHENTICATION" and M uses "MUTUAL AUTHENTICATION". ref is normally 9B, and alg is 03 for 3DES. The key is provided by the card vendor, and the environment variable PIV_EXT_AUTH_KEY must point to a text file containing the key in the format: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX --genkey argument, -G argument Generate a key pair on the card and output the public key. The argument of th form ref:alg is required, where ref is 9A, 9C, 9D or 9E and alg is 06, 07, 11 or 14 for RSA 1024, RSA 2048, ECC 256 or ECC 384 respectively. --object ContainerID, -O ContainerID Load an object on to the card. The ContainerID is as defined in NIST 800-73-n without leading 0x. Example: CHUID object is 3000 --cert ref, -s ref Load a certificate on to the card. ref is 9A, 9C, 9D or 9E --compresscert ref, -Z ref Load a certificate that has been gziped on to the card. ref is 9A, 9C, 9D or 9E --out file, -o file Output file for any operation that produces output. --in file, -i file Input file for any operation that requires an input file. --key-slots-discovery file Print properties of the key slots. Needs 'admin' authentication. --send-apdu apdu, -s apdu Sends an arbitrary APDU to the card in the format AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF.... This option may be repeated. --reader num, -r num Use the given reader number. The default is 0, the first reader in the system. --card-driver driver, -c driver Use the given card driver. The default is auto-detected. --wait, -w Wait for a card to be inserted --verbose, -v Causes piv-tool to be more verbose. Specify this flag several times to enable debug output in the opensc library.
