Yubikey 5 NFC which Pin is it looking for?


I recently installed gpg4win + kleopatra.

When performing things like changing the Cardholder name, it asks for a PIN first.
Which PIN is it asking for? The normal pin I’ve set? The default pin to the yubikey, the pin for PIV?

I’ve tried numerous pins and they all say “bad pin”.

Yet if I access my yubikey via command prompt and verify my pins there, they all work fine.


did you find out which Pin you should use? If you need help with Yubikey you could try out the mailing list gpg4win-users (https://lists.wald.intevation.org/mailman/listinfo/gpg4win-users-en/) or gnupg-users(https://lists.gnupg.org/mailman/listinfo/gnupg-users).
