For the GUUG  spring conference, I wrote an article on the design
of the SCdaemon, GnuPG-2's module to access smartcards:
For GnuPG 2.0 a new framework to access smart cards has been
developed. It is based on a daemon process and designed as a
replacement for the PC/SC architecture. The problems of PC/SC as
and the new solution are described. The new API as well as an
introduction on how supporting code for new smart cards needs to be
written is given. Further we briefly describe a PKCS\#11 connector
based on this API.
