First you need to Install security/ccid + security/opensc from pkgsrc.

Once installed, start the pcscd daemon

# /etc/rc.d/pcscd onestart

Verify that OpenSC finds your ePass2003 smartcard

$ opensc-tool -n
Using reader with a card: Feitian ePass2003 00 00

Start by erasing the card

$ pkcs15-init --erase-card

Bootstrap the ePass2003

$ pkcs15-init --create-pkcs15 --profile pkcs15+onepin --label ""
Using reader with a card: Feitian ePass2003 00 00
New User PIN.
Please enter User PIN:
Please type again to verify:
Unblock Code for New User PIN (Optional - press return for no PIN).
Please enter User unblocking PIN (PUK):
Please type again to verify:

Generate a new RSA key on the card

$ pkcs15-init --generate-key rsa/2048 --key-usage sign,decrypt --auth-id 01 --label ""
Using reader with a card: Feitian ePass2003 00 00
User PIN [User PIN] required.
Please enter User PIN [User PIN]:

Check the ID of the generated key

$ pkcs15-tool --dump
Using reader with a card: Feitian ePass2003 00 00

Export the public key (and copy it to your .ssh/authorized_keys file on your remote host)

$ pkcs15-tool --read-ssh-key 45d70cc6cdd46ce9914edcf6a81cb4fa60bf21ec

Now you can use your smartcard's private key then ssh:ing to your remote host

$ ssh -I /usr/pkg/lib/ pettai@localhost
