ProcedureTo Change the PIN on a Card (Console)

Use this procedure to change the PIN on a smart card by using the Smartcard Console.

Note –

An end user who knows the current PIN can change the PIN on a card.

  1. Verify that the ocfserv daemon is enabled.

    The following command provides the status of the service.

    % svcs network/rpc/ocfserv

    Note –

    Before you make any changes to Smartcard, you must make sure that the ocfserv daemon is enabled.

  2. (Optional) If necessary, as root, enable the ocfserv daemon.

    # svcadm enable network/rpc/ocfserv
  3. Insert the smart card that you want to configure into the card reader.

  4. Select Configure Applets in the Navigation pane.

    The icon for the type of card in the reader is displayed in the Console pane.

  5. Double-click the card icon in the Console pane.

    The Configure Applets dialog box is displayed.

  6. Select SolarisAuthApplet in the listbox.

    The SolarisAuthApplet configuration folders appear on the right side of the dialog box. The folders are represented by tabs that are labeled “PIN” and “User Profiles.” For some smart cards, “RSA Key” and “PKI Cert” might also appear. Only PIN change is described here.

  7. Select the PIN tab.

  8. Type and retype a new PIN.

    A PIN can contain up to eight characters.

  9. Click Change.

    A popup window that is labeled “Change PIN” is displayed.

  10. Type the previous PIN in the popup window. Click the OK button.

    The default PIN, loaded on the card when the SolarisAuthApplet was installed on the card, is $$$$java.
