SecureBlackbox 16: Can I detect insertion and removal of the hardware device (token or cryptocard)?

Note: This article applies only to SecureBlackbox Legacy. For future development please consider using the latest version.

The CryptoAPI does not provide a way to notify applications about insertion or deletion of the token.

Use PKCS#11 to detect insertion or deletion of the hardware device: enable the TElPKCS11CertStorage.MonitorSlotEvents property and handle the OnSlotEvent event to track token insertions and removals.
