There is no PIN caching at all. The card itself does what you call
"caching": As soon as you send a VERIFY command to the card (with the
PIN) the card enters a state which allows operation requiring this
VERIFY command until a reset or power-down. This is detailed in the
There is no command to explicitly do that. You may run "gpgconf
--reload scdaemon" to power down the card.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
