This enum lists the possible PIN-only modes for the PIV application.
public sealed class PivPinOnlyMode : Enum
PIN-only mode means that the application does not need to enter the management key in order to perform PIV operations that normally require it, only the PIN is needed.
See the User's Manual entry on PIN-only mode for a deeper discussion of this feature.
This enum is a bit field. If it is 0 (None, no bits set), that means there is no PIN-only mode set on the YubiKey, but it is available to be set.
If the 1 bit is set (PinProtectedUnavailable), then the YubiKey cannot be set to PIN-Protected.
If the 2 bit is set (PinDerivedUnavailable), then the YubiKey cannot be set to PIN-derived.
If the 4 bit is set (PinProtected), then the YubiKey is currently set to PIN-protected.
If the 8 bit is set (PinDerived), then the YubiKey is currently set to PIN-derived.
Certain combinations of bits are possible:
- PinProtectedUnavailable | PinProtectedUnavailable
- PinDerivedUnavailable | PinProtected
- PinProtectedUnavailable | PinDerived
- PinProtected | PinDerived
