Small detail: this feature is not working in the current stable versions. GnuPG
2.1 will support this.

I use the following script to make the card forget its PIN:


gpg-connect-agent 'SCD RESET' /bye

I created this based on a message of Werner Koch to this list. Earlier, I killed
the scdaemon.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
