OpenSC provides a set of libraries and utilities to work with smart
cards.  Its main focus is on cards that support cryptographic
operations, and facilitate their use in security applications such
as authentication, mail encryption and digital signatures.  OpenSC
implements the  PKCS#11 API so applications supporting this API
(such as Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird) can use it.  On the card
OpenSC implements the PKCS#15 standard and aims to be compatible
with every software/card that does so, too.
OpenSC is written by an international team and is licensed as
Open Source software under the LGPL license version 2.1 of
the License, or (at your option) any later version.
