Smart Card Reader

Use your phone as contact-less smart card reader

Allow a host computer to use the smartphone's NFC hardware as contact-less smartcard reader. On the host computer a special smart card driver, vpcd, must be installed. The app establishes a connection to vpcd over the network when a contact-less card is detected.
