OpenSC consists of a SmartCard library that uses any common transport API (e.g. PC/SC, CT-API, OpenCT) as its backend and applications that use the library. It has been tested extensively on Finnish Electronic Identity (FINEID) cards, but a number of other PKCS #15 and ISO 7816 compatible cards work too. Also implemented are a PKCS #11 module (e.g. for Mozilla Web/email usage), a PAM module, somewhat working OpenSSH support, an OpenSSL engine, a few basic tools, and a PKCS #15 structure generation tool for supported cards.
