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
