Reg : Browser independent solution for accessing smart cards. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can you suggest me with browser independent method of accessing smart card. As i know activex works only in internet explorer.And i haven't tried silverlight but i think it has sandbox model so even it restricts to access operating system resources(smart card resource manager,PCSC library). Please suggest me solution for making it into browser independent. 

    As far as i know there is no .Net library for accessing smart card . PCSC library (In windows OS) is the only way of accessing smart card. But how to access this resource from the web. Please guide me in this issue.

    I dont know whether this is the correct forum for asking this question . I have searched almost every forum i am unable to understand where to ask this question. If this is not the correct forum please tell me where can i post this question.

    Thanking you,

    Pavan

  • From the browser the most viable option is a Java applet. Java supports PKCS#11 interface and also Windows Certificate Store interface on Windows. This will let you use certificates and keys stored on the smartcard. For lower-level operations I am afraid you won't find any options.
