How Does It Work?

The InitTool does basic initialization operations on the smart card inserted into the connected smart card reader or on the USB token. The smart card or USB token is initialized with preferences set in the configuration file.

Why Do I Need It For?

The smart card security depends on setting Admin PIN and User PIN codes. Leaving the factory set Admin PIN unchanged may expose the smart card to unauthorised use (possibility to reset PIN etc.). Additionally, the InitTool offers a comfortable way of setting Admin and User PIN. It is also possible to set PIN policy for User PINs.
