       opensc-tool - generic smart card utility


       opensc-tool [OPTIONS]


       The opensc-tool utility can be used from the command line to perform miscellaneous smart
       card operations such as getting the card ATR or sending arbitrary APDU commands to a card.


           Print the OpenSC package release version.

       --atr, -a
           Print the Answer To Reset (ATR) of the card. Output is in hex byte format

       --card-driver driver, -c driver
           Use the given card driver. The default is auto-detected.

           Lists algorithms supported by card

       --info, -i
           Print information about OpenSC, such as version and enabled components.

       --list-drivers, -D
           List all installed card drivers.

       --list-files, -f
           Recursively list all files stored on card.

       --list-readers, -l
           List all configured readers.

       --name, -n
           Print the name of the inserted card (driver).

       --get-conf-entry conf, -G conf
           Get configuration key, format: section:name:key

       --set-conf-entry conf, -S conf
           Get configuration key, format: section:name:key:value

       --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.

       --reset [type],
           Resets the card in reader. The default reset type is cold, but warm reset is also

       --send-apdu apdu, -s apdu
           Sends an arbitrary APDU to the card in the format AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF....

           Print the card serial number (normally the ICCSN). Output is in hex byte format

       --verbose, -v
           Causes opensc-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.
