Hi all,


Anyone around who succeeded in getting a Kobil mIdentity completely working under linux?

(it is a small usb-device, combining flash-memory, SIM-sized card-reader, and RO-mem with windows drivers)


If you plug it into a system, you only see the part with the windows drivers.

With the tool kobil_midentity_switch, the reader+card become visible,

(I just head from Ludovic that it isn’t included for Ubuntu, but it is still available for SLES11-SP3 )


Opensc-tool –l  show that the card is present,

Pkcs11-tool –O –l show some contend and even let me log-in with my PIN. J


However, the main function of the device, is to let you access the flash memory in a secure (PIN) way.

How should I achieve that?

Under Windows you have all sorts of fancy pop-up displays, asking for PIN and so-on



That I don’t need.

For instance, a comparable product (Ironkey) just has a small CLI-program doing the same for their product.


If any pointers, even if it is known to be completely proprietary, and unachievable under Linux, TNX in advance
