The GnuPG Project is pleased to announce the availability of Scute
Scute is a PKCS#11 module built around the GnuPG Agent and the GnuPG
Smart Card Daemon. It allows you to use an OpenPGP or a PIV smart card
for TLS client authentication and S/MIME mail and document signing.
Noteworthy changes in version 1.6.0 (2019-09-10)
* PIV cards are now supported in addition to OpenPGP cards.
* Key selection is delegated to GpgSM, resulting in faster operations.
* The license has been changed to the GNU Lesser General Public License,
version 2.1 or later.
* Scute now requires at a minimum the current stable version of GnuPG
(2.2.0); advanced PIV card support needs the current GnuPG development
