In my opinion, this doesn't have any problem. Because GIDS is defined based on windows framework, it's not strange that it cannot work with opensc. But I am not sure if my thought is correct.

OpenSC is a framework and requires developers to write plugins to submit to OpenSC to include into their toolkits and libraries.

From OpenSC's Github source codes, it seems that GIDS support over PKCS15 is available.

Which flavour of GIDS applet are you using ? Which card are you using ?

Do provide more information to allow us to give more advise and help.

Hello everybody!

I have same problem with opens and Gids Applet also. I can't initialize pkcs15 with pkcs15-init util.

I provide the small work log:

Code: Select all

OPENSC_DEBUG=1 pkcs15-init -C
Using reader with a card: Identive Identive CLOUD 4500 F Dual Interface Reader
New Security Officer PIN (Optional - press return for no PIN).
Please enter Security Officer PIN:
Please type again to verify:
Unblock Code for New User PIN (Optional - press return for no PIN).
Please enter User unblocking PIN (PUK):
Please type again to verify:
Failed to create PKCS #15 meta structure: Incorrect parameters in APDU

The gids-tool -X is work fine and initialize is done with success.
