Bug#627038: ITP: libacsccid -- PC/SC driver for ACS USB CCID smart card readers



Yes, libccid works for a few models only while libacsccid works for all models of ACS CCID smart card readers.

You can download the drivers from http://www.acs.com.hk/index.php?pid=drivers. For example, select ACR122U (http://www.acs.com.hk/index.php?pid=drivers&id=ACR122U) and you will find the driver (http://www.acs.com.hk/drivers/eng/ACR122U_driver_Lnx_Mac10.5_10.6_1.02_P.zip). The driver "acsccid-1.0.2.tar.bz2" is in the zip file.

I am a maintainer of the driver. acsccid-1.0.2 is based on ccid-1.3.11 and supports all models of ACS CCID smart card readers. The driver is tested by software and hardware engineers from ACS.

  Description     : PC/SC driver for ACS USB CCID smart card readers

This library provides a PC/SC IFD handler implementation for the ACS USB smart
card readers compliant to the CCID protocol.

This package is needed to communicate with the ACS CCID smartcard readers
through the PC/SC Lite resource manager (pcscd).

Does libccid not work for your reader? If it doesn't, maybe reword the
description about the differences to libccid (which should support
CCID compliant devices).

The URL above only links to the main page of the vendor. Can it be a
bit more specific (the URL where you got the source from)?
