Hello everyone,

I was interested in hearing from anyone who might be using OpenPGP v2.1 Smartcards with the Identiv SCR3500 A "SmartFold" USB Reader. A spec sheet on this reader can be found here:


Specifically, has this reader been successfully used to read and write to OpenPGP v2.1 Smartcards under current distros/versions of Linux and/or Apple OS X using recent versions of gnupg?

The reader is natively recognized by the kernel on an up-to-date ArchLinux system with lsusb as:

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 04e6:5410 SCM Microsystems, Inc. SCR35xx Smart Card Reader
as well as Apple OS X (at least from reports on sites selling it), suggesting some level of support.

Any info would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance,
