towitoko-tester is a simple tool that allows executing some
simple commands on a smartcard using a Towitoko smartcard reader.
It can be used to test that a smartcard can be properly recognized,
and that it can be read and written.
The tool provides a text based menu interface. Commands that can be
executed via the menu depends on the reader card insertion status
and the type of card inserted. For memory cards it permits reading
and writing data bytes, checking and changing the PIN. For processor
cards it permits selecting, reading and updating binary card files.
Several readers on different ports can be used at a time. The text
menu allows opening, closing and changing current port. The smartcard
can be inserted and removed from any initialized reader at any time.
The tool will automatically detect when the card is inserted and
removed, and will update the information shown in the menu. However
you must refresh the menu to see any change reflected.
If you have installed pcscd package, and have configured your reader
to be used by pscsd, you'll need to stop the pcsc daemon before
initializing the reader with towitoko-tester.
