MUSCLE provides support for smart cards for the Linux operating system. Among the project goals are the implementation of the PC/SC standard for accessing smart cards, better S/MIME integration with the Netscape browser, drivers for cards and card readers and PAM support smart card authentication. Additionally, this PC/SC implementation can be used as an abstraction layer to enable OCF applications to operate.
