pcsc-lite-1.6.6-3.1 RPM for x86_64

From OpenSuSE 11.4 for x86_64

Name: pcsc-lite Distribution: openSUSE 11.4
Version: 1.6.6 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 3.1 Build date: Sat Feb 19 03:58:13 2011
Group: Productivity/Security Build host: build27
Size: 544733 Source RPM: pcsc-lite-1.6.6-3.1.src.rpm
Summary: PCS Smart Cards Library
The purpose of PCSC Lite is to provide a Windows(R) SCard interface in
a very small form factor for communication with smart cards and
readers. PCSC Lite can be compiled directly for a desired reader driver
or can be used to dynamically allocate/deallocate reader drivers at
runtime (the default behavior).

PCSC Lite uses the same winscard API as used in Windows(R).

Security aware people should read the SECURITY file for possible
vulnerabilities of pcsclite and how to fix them. For information on how
to install drivers please read the DRIVERS file.

Memory cards will be supported through the MCT specification, which is
an APDU like manner sent normally through the SCardTransmit() function.
This functionality is exercised in the driver.

    * SCardGetStatusChange() works again.
    * detect buffer overflows if pcscd if used by a rogue client
    * force access rights on /var/run/pcscd to be sure it can be used
      by a libpcsclite client without privileges
    * create the PCSCLITE_EVENTS_DIR directory with the sticky bit so
      only root or the owner of the event files can remove them
    * if RFAddReader() fails with the libhal scheme then we try with
