linux - smartcard - yubikey

Post by bakuuu » Fri Jun 03, 2022 10:20 am

I cannot configure vpn on linux (mint) with smartcard (yubikey).
On windows 10 everything works fine.

On linux:
output from: pkcs11-tool

Slot 0 (0x0): Yubico YubiKey OTP+FIDO+CCID 00 00
token manufacturer : piv_II
token model : PKCS#15 emulated
token flags : login required, rng, token initialized, PIN initialized
hardware version : 0.0
firmware version : 0.0

When I connect with vpnclient via vpncmd

VPN Client>VPN Client>SecureList
SecureList command - Get List of Usable Smart Card Types
The command completed successfully.

The list of smartcards is empty.

What am I doing wrong ?
