Hello, it's me again;)

I was wondering if your library (.NET edition) helps in detecting insertion/removal of hardware token into/from the reader (maybe by firing some events?), or should I use some external libraries to monitor the readers for this things.

Neither PKCS#11 nor CryptoAPI provide a uniform way to notify the applications about insertion/deletion of the token. So the only option is to enumerate the slots via PKCS#11 and query their status on timer.

Sincerely yours
