Drivers

libccid

A generic driver for USB CCID (Chip/Smart Card Interface Devices) driver and ICCD (Integrated Circuit(s) Card Devices). See the USB's CCID and ICCD specifications from the USB working group.

gnupg-ccid

GnuPG has its own in-stock CCID driver which directly communicates the reader by libusb. It only supports readers which have capability of auto configuration.

See GnuPG/CCID_Driver for details.

Note that GnuPG also support readers through PC/SC-lite.
