Description Marko Myllynen 2012-09-26 08:02:03 EDT
Description of problem:
The following works as expected

pkcs11-tool --module ... -I -l
Please enter User PIN:

but with stdout redirected pkcs11-tool refuses to read from stdin

pkcs11-tool --module ... -I -l > /dev/null
error: No PIN entered, exiting!

It would be helpful to have this working in scripts to check a user supplied password silently if ok or error out if invalid password.
