To enable additional debugging for the Authentication Services daemon
See Enabling diagnostic logging in the Authentication Services Administration Guide for more information on debugging vasd.
If a failure occurs when testing your cards, it is valuable to have as much debug information as possible. Some PKCS #11 libraries may provide a way to collect additional debugging information. For example, the following procedure explains how to enable debugging for the PKCS#11 library using OpenSC. For more information on OpenSC, see OpenSC Manual Pages: Section 5.
To enable debugging for the PKCS#11 library
Edit the opencs.conf, adding the following configuration options to the opensc-pkcs11 application block:
debug = <num>;
where <num> indicates the amount of debug information to be included. A greater value means more debugging information is included. Default: 0.
The OPENSC_DEBUG environment variable overwrites this setting.
debug_file = <filenname>;
where <filename> is the name of the file to which the debug information will be written. Default: stderr.
Special values, stdout and stderr are recognized.
The following sections describe symptoms and possible causes that you might encounter when using the vastool smartcard commands.
For information on other vastool commands, see the Authentication Services Administration Guide, which can be found on the Authentication Services - Technical Documentation page on the One Identity support site.
You encounter this error when you have not configured a PKCS#11 library.
