I use the components CertStorage and SessionInfoto read the certificates present on a token. Oneuses this key to sign files.

It happens that the customer is mistaken by seizing his password.

Can one have information on the number of remaining test ?

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Hello David,

There is no way to find out the number of remaining login attempts through PKCS#11 interface. This number usually depends on the token firmware and is not accessible via a public interface. So we can't help you with this, sorry.

Some vendors supply customized management utilities that can be used to retrieve the number of remaining attempts though.
