Aventra MyEID PKI
Sample code uses ES6 language features such as arrow functions and promises. For compatibility with IE11, code written with these features must be either transpiled using tools like Babel or refactored accordingly using callbacks.

Introduction

Aventra MyEID PKI Card is a cryptographic smart card conforming to common Public Key Infrastructure standards like ISO/IEC-7816 and PKCS#15v1.0 specification. It can be used for various tasks requiring strong cryptography, e. g. logging securely to Windows, encrypting e-mail, authentication, and electronic signatures. The card is also available as a Dual Interface version, compatible with T=CL protocol and also emulating Mifare™. The card is a JavaCard with Aventra MyEID applet that implements the functionality.
The applet implements the FINEID S1 v1.12 specification and it can be configured to include all or any subset of the features specified in FINEID S4-1 or S4-2 specifications. Starting from version 2.2.0 the applet supports both 1024 and 2048 bit RSA keys. From version 3.0.0 (MyEID3) the applet supports keys from 512 bit up to 2048 bit in increments of 64 bits. The applet is fully compatible with JavaCard 2.1.1 and GlobalPlatform 2.0.1 specifications. The new MyEID version 3 (MyEID3) is now released and it uses the new JavaCard 2.2.1 and GlobalPlatform 2.1.1 platform. The new MyEID3 now supports RSA keys from 512 up to 2048 bits in 64 bit increments. MyEID3 supports file sizes up to 32767 bytes and 14 different PIN-codes can be created and used. The number of RSA keys is only limited by the available memory and maximum numbers of files (see PUT DATA: INITIALISE APPLET).

Certificate

When additional parsing of the certificate is needed you can add a boolean to indicate if you want to parse the certificate or not.

Root certificate

Contains the 'root certificate' stored on the smart card.

}, err => {
3
console.error(err)
4

aventra.authenticationCertificate(parseCertsBoolean).then(res => {
2
}, err => {
3
console.error(err)
4
})
Copied!

Non repudiation certificate

1
aventra.nonRepudiationCertificate(parseCertsBoolean).then(res => {
2
}, err => {
3
console.error(err)
4
})

Issuer certificate

1
aventra.issuerCertificate(parseCertsBoolean).then(res => {

Sign

To sign data, an algorithm must be specified in the algorithm property (see Supported Algorithms), and a Base64-encoded string representation of the digest bytes of the same algorithm in the data property.
Additionally, it is possible to bulk sign data without having to re-enter the PIN by adding an optional bulk parameter set to true to the request. Subsequent sign requests will not require the PIN to be re-entered until a request with bulk being set to false is sent, or the Bulk PIN Reset method is called.
When using bulk signing, great care must be taken to validate that the first signature request was successful prior to sending subsequent requests. Failing to do this will likely result in the card being blocked.
1
const data = {
2
algorithm: "sha256",
3
data: "E1uHACbPvhLew0gGmBH83lvtKIAKxU2/RezfBOsT6Vs=",
