Can anybody make recommendations for a short list of card readers,
preferably with PIN pads?
I've got the SPR532 and found it works fine but it is no longer
listed on the vendor's web site, I've previously tested Reiner SCT
cyberJack Secoder 2 and found it didn't work. I'm looking at what to
recommend for other people trying the clean room live DVD
This list appears to suggest choosing one of the 6 readers that support
variable length PIN, although the first on the list is the SPR532 (no
longer in production) so it is not clear if this is current:
Is that a good list to refer people to, or can anybody suggest changes?
I came across this list:
Is that considered up-to-date? Some of the readers appear quite old
now, should somebody starting today buy one of those or something newer?
Debian has a list of card readers that appear to be supported by
drivers, but it is quite long and doesn't really make any recommendations:
The FSFE guide doesn't give any recommendation about choosing a reader,
although it does emphasize the use of readers with PIN pad:
PC/SC Lite has a list, it is also rather long though:
