Right.  You need to use gpgsm for the X.509 keys as used with these

  gpgsm --learn-card

to read the certificates from the card and from then on it should just
work - well in theory.  The current signature cards may not work
anymore; for example TCOS 3 requires secure messaging which is not yet

If you run into problems you could try this:

  $ gpg-connect-agent
  scd serialno dinsig
  scd learn --force

and if should return some infos.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
