Safenet

Introduction

The following page describes how you can integrate the Safenet module exposed on the Trust1Connector onto your web application.
Middleware of Safenet has to be installed to be able to fully use the Safenet token.
Supported version of the middleware is; Windows: 10.2 - 64bit & 32bit MacOS: 10.2

Models

All model information can be found in the Token typings model page

Get Safenet container object

Initialise a Trust1Connector client:
1
T1CSdk.T1CClient.initialize(config).then(res => {
2
client = res;
3
}, err => {
4
console.error(error)
5
});
Copied!
Get the Belgian eID container service:
1
var beid = client.safenet(reader_id);
Copied!
Call a function for the Belgian eID container:
1
function callback(err,data) {
2
if(err){console.log("Error:",JSON.stringify(err, null, ' '));}
3
else {console.log(JSON.stringify(data, null, ' '));}
4
}
5
beid.biometric(callback);
Copied!

Obtain the Reader-ID

The constructor for the Belgian eID expect as the parameter to be a valid reader-ID. A reader-ID can be obtained from the exposed core functionality, for more information see Core services responds with available card-readers, available card in a card-reader, etc. For example: In order to get all connected card-readers, with available cards:
1
var core = client.core();
2
core.readersCardAvailable(callback);
Copied!
This function call returns:
1
{
2
"data": [
3
{
4
"card": {
5
"atr": "3B9813400AA503010101AD1311",
6
"description": [""]
7
},
8
"id": "57a3e2e71c48cee9",
9
"name": "JC Token",
10
"pinpad": false
11
}
12
],
13
"success": true
14
}
Copied!
All methods for safenet will use the selected reader - identified by the reader_id.

Certificates

Exposes all the certificates publicly available on the smart card.

Root Certificate

Contains the 'root certificate' stored on the smart card. The root certificate is used to sign the 'citizen CA 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. The service can be called:
1
client.beid(reader_id).rootCertificate(parseCertsBoolean, callback);
Copied!

Data Filter

Filter Certificates

All certificates on the smart card can be dumped at once, or using a filter. In order to read all certificates at once:
1
var filter = [];
2
client.beid(reader_id).allCerts(parseCerts, { filters: filter}, callback);
Copied!
Response:
1
{
2
"rootCertificate": {
3
...
4
},
5
"authenticationCertificate": {
6
...
7
},
8
"nonRepudiationCertificate": {
9
...
10
},
11
"intermediateCertificates": {
12
...
13
},
14
"encryptionCertificate": {
15
...
16
}
17
}
Copied!
The filter can be used to ask a list of custom data containers. For example, we want to read only the rootCertificate
1
var filter = ['rootCertificate'];
2
client.safenet(reader_id).allCerts(parseCerts, { filters: filter}, callback);
Copied!
Response:
1
{
2
"rootCertificate": {
3
...
4
}
5
}
Copied!

Sign Data

Signing

Data can be signed using the Belgian eID smart card. To do so, the T1C-GCL facilitates in:
    Retrieving the certificate chain (citizen-certificate, root-certificate and non-repudiation certificate)
    Perform a sign operation (private key stays on the smart card)
    Return the signed hash
To get the certificates necessary for signature validation in your back-end:
1
var filter = null;
2
client.safnet(reader_id).allCerts(parseCerts, { filters: filter}, callback);
Copied!
Response:
1
{
2
"rootCertificate": {
3
...
4
},
5
"authenticationCertificate": {
6
...
7
},
8
"nonRepudiationCertificate": {
9
...
10
},
11
"intermediateCertificates": {
12
...
13
},
14
"encryptionCertificate": {
15
...
16
}
17
}
Copied!
Depending on the connected smart card reader. A sign can be executed in 2 modes:
    Using a connected card reader with 'pin-pad' capabilities (keypad and display available)
    Using a connected card reader without 'pin-pad' capabilities (no keypad nor display available)

Sign Hash without pin-pad

When the web or native application is responsible for showing the password input, the following request is used to sign a given hash:
1
var data = {
2
"pin":"...",
3
"algorithm":"sha1",
4
"data":"I2e+u/sgy7fYgh+DWA0p2jzXQ7E=",
5
"osDialog": true
6
}
7
client.safenet(reader_id).sign(data, callback);
Copied!
Response is a base64 encoded signed hash:
1
{
2
"success": true,
3
"data": {
4
"data" : "W7wqvWA8m9S...="
5
}
6
}
Copied!
The 'authenticationreference' property can contain the following values: sha1, sha256, sha512, md5.

Sign Hash with pin-pad

When the pin entry is done on the pin-pad, the following request is used to sign a given hash:
1
var data = {
2
"algorithm":"sha1",
3
"data":"I2e+u/sgy7fYgh+DWA0p2jzXQ7E=",
4
"osDialog": false
5
}
6
client.safenet(reader_id).sign(data, callback);
Copied!
Response is a base64 encoded signed hash:
1
{
2
"success": true,
3
"data": {
4
"data" : "W7wqvWA8m9S...="
5
}
6
}
Copied!
The 'algorithm_reference' property can contain the following values: sha1, sha256, sha512, md5.
The core services lists connected readers, and if they have pin-pad capability. You can find more information in the Core Service documentation on how to verify card reader capabilities.

Verify PIN

Verify PIN without pin-pad

When the web or native application is responsible for showing the password input, the following request is used to verify a card holder PIN:
1
var data = {
2
"pin":"..."
3
}
4
client.safenet(reader_id).verifyPin(data, callback);
Copied!
Response:
1
{
2
"verified": true
3
}
Copied!

Verify PIN with pin-pad

When the pin entry is done on the pin-pad, the following request is used to verify a given PIN:
1
var data = {}
2
client.safenet(reader_id).verifyPin(data, callback);
Copied!
Response:
1
{
2
"verified": true
3
}
Copied!

Authentication

The T1C is able to authenticate a card holder based on a challenge. The challenge can be:
    provided by an external service
    provided by the smart card An authentication can be interpreted as a signature use case, the challenge is signed data, that can be validated in a back-end process.
    External Challenge
    An external challenge is provided in the data property of the following example:
    1
    var data = {
    2
    "pin": "...",
    3
    "algorithm": "sha1",
    4
    "data":"I2e+u/sgy7fYgh+DWA0p2jzXQ7E="
    5
    }
    6
    client.safenet(reader_id).authenticate(data, callback);
    Copied!
    Response:
    1
    {
    2
    "success": true,
    3
    "data": {
    4
    "data" : "W7wqvWA8m9S...="
    5
    }
    6
    }
    Copied!
    Take notice that the PIN property can be omitted when using a smart card reader with pin-pad capabilities. The 'algorithm_reference' property can contain the following values: sha1, sha256, sha512, md5.
    Generated Challenge
    A server generated challenge can be provided to the JavaScript library. In order to do so, an additional contract must be provided with the 'OCV API' (Open Certificate Validation API).
1
The calculated digest of the hash is prefixed with:
2
DigestInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
3
digestAlgorithm AlgorithmIdentifier,
4
digest OCTET STRING
5
}
6
Make sure this has been taken into consideration in order to validate the signature in a backend process.
