So you're stuck with Secure Boot and you want to use Smart Cards

Card Initialization

  • Procure some PKCS15 smart cards. Do not get Java Cards. Get "eToken" cards. They're CDW Part #1537376 . I'm sorry you'll have to deal with CDW but that's life sometimes.
  • Install the following packages:
    • pesign
    • pcsc-lite-ccid
    • pcsc-tools
    • pcsc-lite
    • opensc
  • Use pesign-keygen (tbd) to generate two keys:
    • CA Key ("ca.p12" from here on out)
    • Signing Key - signed with the CA key ("fedora.p12" from here on out)
  • Initialize two smart cards
    • Make sure pcscd is running
service pcscd start
    • Insert your Smart Card
    • Initialize each card as a pkcs15 card
# CDW Part #1537376.
CARDLABEL="Fedora Signing Card"

# Format (wipe) the card.
# opensc-tool --list-algorithms
cardos-tool -f

# Create the PKCS#15 structures, set the security officer PIN and unlock code.
pkcs15-init -CT

# Create a user PIN and unlock code.
pkcs15-init -P -a 1 --pin $PIN --label "$CARDLABEL"
    • Import the signing key to each of the smart cards
# Import a PKCS12 bundle.
pkcs15-init --store-private-key fedora.p12 --format pkcs12 --auth-id 01 --pin $PIN

# List the contents.
pkcs11-tool --module -l --pin $PIN -O
    • Destroy fedora.p12
