Welcome to the official acsccid project web site.


acsccid is a PC/SC driver for Linux/Mac OS X and it supports ACS CCID smart card readers. This library provides a PC/SC IFD handler implementation and communicates with the readers through the PC/SC Lite resource manager (pcscd).

acsccid is based on ccid. See CCID free software driver for more information.

To build acsccid, you need the following software:
