Re: Problems accessing ActivIdentity USB SIM under Gentoo Linux 64 bit on Intel

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


What do I need to do to assist/diagnose this problem?

I know C but don't know the protocols.

I also noticed that I think the ActivIdentity USB SIM may have timing issues because if I connect the device to a Windows XP VM in VirtualBox runnning on my Gentoo Linux 32 bit system, which has the ActivIdentity software installed. From the VM, I remote desktop to a VirtualBox Windows XP VM on a remote computer. The Remote Windows XP VM also has the ActivIdentity software installed and try authenticate to the remote machine using the key, sometimes it works, other times it takes ages, and the USB SIM sits there being accessed constantly, as though it's retrying frequently, whereas, when used locally (on the remote VM), it's a couple of accesses and it's done.

USB SIM is at home, remote Windows XP VM is at work.

Host Gentoo 32 bit Linux -> VirtualBox Windows XP VM ->  Remote Desktop -> network (VPN)  -> Host Gentoo 64 bit linux -> VirtualBox Windows XP VM -> ActivIdentity authentication

Bottom line, I am not entirely convinced that the Software provided by ActivIdentity works reliably given the USB data is transported across a network, introducing timing delays.

Something seems to be awfully fragile.
It used to work 2 times in a row then fail on the third, quite
reliably. :(

Now, it does not seem to work at all.

Find attached "pcscd -f -d -a" output and "-pkcs11_inspect debug" output.
 OK, I'm guessing it's the single cert issue. Do you know how many certs
are on your card?

In any case pcscd and pk11_inspect logs are going to be useless, the
problem is directly in libcoolkey.
