You need to do this on a system where the real key is available.  The
error message indicates that the actual secret key is not available but
replaced by a dummy stub (protection mode 1001).  This has nothing to do
with a smart card stub (protection mode 1002).



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
