1 1 1 never never never never read/write block

1 if Key B may be read in the corresponding Sector Trailer it cannot serve for authentication (all grey marked lines in the last table). As a consequence, if the reader authenticates any block of a sector which uses the grey marked access conditions and using key B, the card will refuse any subsequent memory access after authentication.
