To initialize a Hardware Security Module (HSM) with key pairs and certificates or a secret key, the command-line program hwsetup is provided with Smart ID Certificate Manager (CM). The program is located in the <install_root>/tools directory where CM is installed.

When creating key pairs or importing certificates, the PKCS #11 library of the HSM device must allow certificate objects to be stored in the same token as the key pairs.

To print information about the cryptoki interface:

hwsetup -libname <pkcs11lib> -info

This article is valid for Certificate Manager 8.5 and later.
