A new version is out (10.8.1050). This version fixes my issues with SafeNet eToken 5100.

I've made a patch, and there is the link to download the Thales package.

@pirofti: Well, after seeing some updates to pcscd, I just realized that the reason AKS ifdh is no longer bundled with SAC is because all remaining supported USB tokens can be handled by the standard ccid driver. So try that instead of sac-core-legacy.

grawity commented on 2022-12-04 20:01 (UTC)

Yes, pcscd needs to be restarted to reload its IFD drivers. I'm really not sure why they are not included with SAC 10.8 even though it's supposed to support the 5110.

Once pcscd sees the device, either the 10.8 or legacy 10.0 PKCS#11 modules should work identically, even without the SACSrv daemon (I think that's only used by the GUI components).

pirofti commented on 2022-12-04 18:52 (UTC)

After restarting the pcscd daemon, the device was visible. So either I installed the sac-legacy package before starting the daemon, either something else was wrong, but I did manage to see the device with this. Thank you and sorry about the noise!

pirofti commented on 2022-12-04 10:32 (UTC)

Thank you for the quick reply! Sorry, forgot to mention that I also have core-legacy installed and the safenet service running. So that does not fix things.

grawity commented on 2022-12-04 09:06 (UTC)

SAC 10.8 only has partial support for 5110 and is missing the PCSC "USB card reader driver" (aks-ifdh). You'll need to have sac-core-legacy installed for that.

pirofti commented on 2022-12-03 22:16 (UTC)

My Safenet 5110 device is not displayed by SACTools even though I can use it in Windows and I see it in the dmesg when plugging it in. Are there any extra steps I need to run before starting SACTools? Is there any extra documentation I should read? Thank you!

grawity commented on 2022-11-27 11:33 (UTC)

I see that loads libcrypto.1.1 at run-time, but it seems to be optional – the PKCS#11 module still works without. Is there some functionality that requires OpenSSL?

Missing dependency openssl-1.1

A new version is out (10.8.28). I got this PKGDBUILD to work normally by replacing the source link with the link for the previous version "", but I suppose it could be tested with the new version and then updated.
