Smart Card Subsystem

The Smart Card Subsystem component is based on Personal Computer/Smart Card (PC/SC) consortium standards and consists of the following parts:

  • Resource Manager
  • Card/Reader Selection UI

Resource Manager

This component manages access to readers and smart cards. To manage these resources, it performs the following three functions:

  • Identifies and tracks resources.
  • Allocates readers and resources across multiple applications.
  • Supports transaction primitives for accessing services available on a given card.

The Resource Manager component also exposes a subset of the Microsoft Win32-based application programming interfaces (APIs) to provide applications with access to these functions.

Card/Reader Selection UI

This component allows simple smart card-aware applications to access a card and reader with minimum coding.
