Authenticity check

SpringCore devices feature a digital signature, computed by SpringCard using a private key, as a proof their are genuine.

The message that is signed is the "fingerprint" of the very device, computed other the hardware identifiers and serial numbers of all the key electronic parts in the device.

This signature and its verification against the corresponding public key allows the buyer to verify that its device has been actually manufactured by SpringCard.

Operation

Read the device's fingerpint

SCardControl / Direct command

<<< 58 E1 // GET_SEAL_SUBJECT
>>> 58 00 433D46522C4F3D537072696E6743617264... // fingerprint (71 bytes)

Using SpringCoreTool.exe

To 'see' the device's Seal subject, use:

> SpringCoreTool seal-subject --dump
subject=C=FR,O=SpringCard,OU=SpringCore,CN=8A07A5AD-9655-058D-3F9C-8D1E38AC900D

To write the device's Seal subject into a file, use:

> SpringCoreTool seal-subject subject.txt

Read the device's signature

SCardControl / Direct command

<<< 58 E3 // GET_SEAL_SIGNATURE
>>> 58 00 63EFF1... // signature (256 bytes)

Using SpringCoreTool.exe

To 'see' the device's Seal, use:

> SpringCoreTool seal-get --dump
seal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

To write the device's Seal into a file, use:

> SpringCoreTool seal-get seal.bin

Verify the signature given the public key
