       openpgp-tool - utility for accessing visible data OpenPGP smart cards and compatible


       openpgp-tool [OPTIONS]


       The openpgp-tool utility is used for accessing data from the OpenPGP v1.1 and v2.0 smart
       cards and compatible tokens like e.g. GPF CryptoStick v1.x, which might not be present in
       PKCS#15 objects but available in custom files on the card. The data can be printed on
       screen or used by other programs via environment variables.


       --del-key arg
           Delete key indicated by arg.  arg can be 1, 2, 3, or all.

       --do arg, -d arg
           Dump private data object (DO) indicated by arg.  arg can be in the form x, 10x, or
           010x to access DO 010x, where x is 1, 2, 3, or 4.

       --erase, -E
           Erase (i.e. reset) the card.

       --exec prog, -x prog
           Execute the given program with data in environment variables.

       --gen-key arg, -G arg
           Generate key with the ID given as arg.  arg can be one of 1, 2, or 3.

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

       --key-length bitlength, -L bitlength
           Specify the length of the key to be generated. If not given, it defaults to 2048 bit.

       --pin string
           The PIN text to verify. If set to env:VARIABLE, the value of the environment variable
           VARIABLE is used.

           Print values in pretty format.

           Print values in raw format, as they are stored on the card.

       --reader num, -r num
           Specify the reader to use. By default, the first reader with a present card is used.
           If num is an ATR, the reader with a matching card will be chosen.

       --user-info, -U
           Show card holder information.

       --verify pintype
           Verify PIN (CHV1, CHV2 or CHV3).

       --version, -V
           Print the version of the utility and exit.

       --verbose, -v
           Verbose operation. Use several times to enable debug output.

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