Description :
OpenSC is a package for for accessing smart card devices.  Basic
functionality (e.g. SELECT FILE, READ BINARY) should work on any ISO
7816-4 compatible smart card.  Encryption and decryption using private
keys on the smart card is possible with PKCS #15 compatible cards,
such as the FINEID (Finnish Electronic IDentity) card.  Swedish Posten
eID cards have also been confirmed to work.

Update Information:

This is an update to OpenSC 0.12.1 release.

Upstream release notes include:
* New card driver: IAS/ECC 1.0.1
* rutoken-tool has been deprecated and removed.
* eidenv and piv-tool utilities now have manual pages.
* pkcs11-tool now requires the use of --module parameter.
* All tools can now use an ATR as an argument to --reader, to skip to the card with given ATR.
* opensc-tool -l with -v now shows information about the inserted cards.
* Creating files have an enforced upper size limit, 64K
* Support for multiple PKCS#15 applications with different AID-s. PKCS#15 applications can be listed with pkcs15-tool --list-applications. Binding to a specific AID with PKCS#15 tools can be done with --aid.
* Hex strings (like card ATR or APDU-s) can now be separated by space, in addition to colons.
* Pinpad readers known to be bogus are now ignored by OpenSC. At the moment only "HP USB Smart Card Keyboard" is disabled.
* Numerous compiler warnings, unused code and internal bugs have been eliminated.
