Admin Key vs. Reset Code

Ahoi,

via gpg --change-pin kann ich meine PINs verwalten.

[code]$ gpg --change-pin
gpg: OpenPGP Karte Nr. D2670002104010200005000001D80000 erkannt

1 - change PIN
2 - unblock PIN
3 - change Admin PIN
4 - set the Reset Code
Q - quit[/code]
Option 1 (User PIN) und Option 3 (Admin PIN) bedarf keiner weiteren Klärung. Was aber ist denn bitte der Option 4 = Reset Code?

Weiß da einer Bescheid, oder hat jemand einen Tip, wo ich mich da schlau machen kann?

[quote]4.2.1 Resetting Code
If, for example, the card is issued by an authority or company, the users will get a complete personalised card with keys and password. The user should be able to work with the card, but is not permitted to change card data like keys and DOs under control of the issuer. He must know his user-password (PW1), but is not aware of the admin-password (PW3). To reset PW1 in the case of a blocked error counter, a special Resetting Code (RC) is introduced. The issuer should give the RC to the user together with his password. The Resetting Code has the same format as the password and is stored in a DO ‘RC’. The maximum length is announced in PW Status bytes, the minimum length is 8 bytes. The Resetting Code can be used within the command RESET RETRY COUNTER instead of the admin-password (PW3). It is only valid for resetting PW1. By default DO ‘RC’ is empty and the related error counter is zero, so it cannot be used. The Resetting Code has an error counter with an initial value of 3. This error counter is readable with GET DATA. The DO ‘RC’ can be set to any value with a PUT DATA command after correct verification of the admin-password (PW3), the error counter then is set to 3.[/quote]

Griasde Jan,

So mal ins Blaue hineingeraten, steht DO für Data Object, oder was kann ich mir da genaueres drunter vorstellen.

Deinem Quote entnehme ich ferner, dass es da irgendwo so eine Art documentation geben muss, die ich zu Rate ziehen könnte. Wo kann ich die denn abgreifen? :wink: Im Moment beweg ich mich noch auf dem Level, ausprobieren und verstehen, was da gemeint sein könnte. :confused:

P.S.: eMails angekommen in Sachen ooo und CS?

Ja, DO = Data Object.
