I would like to write a tutorial about lvm encrypted partitions and
OpenSC smartcards. I Googled but could not find examples of lvm
partitions encrypted with an OpenSC smartcard.

OpenSC smartcard. So we have to use the smartcard to store the

Do you confirm?

Second, storing objects and retrieving them on smartcard is described
here (Feitian PKI sold on GOOZE website):

Any idea/help appreciated.

Kind regards,
