How to test a smartcard reader now the PC/SC workgroup is gone? (including the test card set) RRS feed

  • Question

  • For certifying a smartcard reader using the HCK / HLK a set of smartcards had to be purchased from the PC/SC workgroup.

    The PC/SC workgroup has ceased to exist though! The website is gone and even Ludovic Rousseau does not know what happened (per his blog).

    So how can I certify a smartcard reader driver without the PC/SC test cards now? Is there another website where I could purchase the card set? Or are there filters that take care of this now?

    Thanks in advance!

  • According to Ludovic's blog post on Saturday, June 15, 2019, the site is back up.  However, I for one would like to know what the configuration is of these 5 test cards with a price tag of $1000?  And what does someone do when their device doesn't accept card insertion like a token or a virtual device?
