Welcome to opensc-project.org

This server hosts a number of open source projects devoted to smart cards. Each project has its own infrastructure with wiki webpages, source code in a subversion repository, a web front end to the source repository, a ticket system for reporting bugs and feature requests and so on. Still all projects use the same mailing lists together so you have one central contact if you need any help.

The projects
