JavaCard Reader Drivers

In my effort to have a non vendor specific JavaCard reader application/applet. Here's something else I discovered. Well, this may sound silly The SmartCard/JavaCard reader neds to either be built into your desktops/laptops or you may need to use a external reader. You are free to buy a reader from any vendor and in the process of doing so, you would also receive the necessary PC/SC drivers from the vendor.

but to make life simpler, here's a small list of vendors that you may procure your smartcard reader from.

  1. Schlumberger
  2. Gemplus
  3. SCM Microsystems
  4. Towitoko
  5. Omnikey
  6. Advanced Card Systems
  7. Athena Smartcard Systems
  8. Intertex IX
  9. Ankari (American Biometrics)
  10. Orga

There may be some of you who may not want to go through he process of buying a reader and a smartcard but would still be interedted in testing the applet/application without shelling out any moolah. Well, I have something for those folks too. I suggest you use the Smart Card Simulator. TSCS is a program for Windows 32 simulating a terminal and a smart card. Neither a smart card nor a smart card terminal is necessary. Just install the software on your PC and start working with smart cards. With this software you can see ¨into¨ the smart card, create files, send commands and receive the response from the smart card.

The Smart Card Simulator offers you a wide variety of possibilities to learn and work with a smart card. It can be used to understand and to learn the principles of a smart card, design and test a smart card application, calculate typical execution times etc.
