AllowAnyNewKeyId

When generating a key, it is possible to specify key ID, that is, 1 byte with 9A, 9C, etc. It is also possible to specify an empty key ID, that is, 0 byte. If the parameter is set to 1, active, all non-one-byte key IDs will be classified as empty. That is, the first possible will be used.

[SmartCard PIV]
AllowAnyNewKeyId=0

Values

0

Inactive

1

Active

CheckFIPS

Do a check if a YubiKey is a FIPS 140-2 device or not, and then print this information to trace.

[SmartCard PIV]
CheckFIPS=0

Values

0

No FIPS check is done. This is the default value.

1

Do a FIPS check.

3

Do a FIPS check and update model to YubiKey FIPS.

KeepCardNumber

The card number can be stored in the PIV profile. Net iD Client can generate a new random token number at C_InitToken when initializing a token. But it can also keep the current number. Activate the KeepCardNumber parameter to keep the old number.

[SmartCard PIV]
KeepCardNumber=0

Values

0

Generate a new number.

1

Keep the current number.

ShowObjects

There are a number of PIV data objects that can be shown as PKCS#11 data objects. We try to avoid reading unnecessary objects, so only those configured are read. This value contains a bitmask for the objects that can be read.

RequireDigits

The PIV specification requires that the PIN only contains digits, but there are PIV implementations that allow non-digits. The RequireDigits parameter can disable the requirement and allow all characters.

[SmartCard PIV]
RequireDigits=0

UpdateByUser

The PIV specification specifies that all updates of PIV token require administrator (CKU_SO), using AdminKey. But some PIV implementations allow User PIN for updates.

[SmartCard PIV]
UpdateByUser=0

Values

The default value depends on the token. Crescendo Key will update by User PIN. All other PIV tokens use AdminKey.

0

AdminKey update

1

PIN update

UseCardNumber

The PIV specification defines a GUID as the token identifier, but some tokens have a shorter, more user-friendly number. This parameter tells if to use the shorter token number.

[SmartCard PIV]
UseCardNumber=1

Values

The default value depends on the token. The tokens with implementation support for the shorter number will use it, and all others will use the GUID. Normal GUID is used if it is impossible to read any shorter number.

0

GUID

1

Shorter number
