does not allow caching smart card logins
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Release: 1.9.20




When importing keys from a signing party, I have to decrypt large numbers of messages; as I use a smartcard, I keep getting asked for the CHV2 for each one.

How To Repeat

iterate over a list of encrypted files where the key for decryption is stored on a smartcard, decrypting each.


It would be nice to have a way to allow the scdaemon to remain authenticated to the card or alternatively cache the PIN (ugh).
