Mac OS X, after renewing certificates I cant authenticate to web services any more

If you renewed your ID-card certificates then you will not be able to use your ID-card before you have followed these instructions:

  • Open the terminal window (easiest way to open it is to use keyboard shortcuts and press Cmd(apple)+Space and write into the search field "terminal")
  • Insert following command "sudo rm -rf /var/db/TokenCache/tokens" (without quotes) and press enter
  • Enter your Mac OS X username password and press again enter

NB! If you are entering your password then it seems that it's not being entered. Terminal does not show any symbols, meaning if you are sure that you entered password correctly, then press enter.

Finish changes with restart and after that your computer should use your new ID-card certificates.
