8.26. ccid

Updated ccid packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Chip/Smart Card Interface Devices (CCID) is a USB Smart Card reader standard followed by most modern Smart Card readers. The ccid package provides a Generic, USB-based CCID driver for readers that follow this standard.

Bug Fix

Smart Card readers have multiple modes, some of which have limitations on the size of commands that can be sent to the Smart Card. Previously, OmniKey 3121 supported the modes of operation that allowed longer commands, but not in the standard CCID way. As a consequence, the user received an unrecoverable error message when running a long command. This update recognizes OmniKey 3121 and enables the longer modes so that longer commands are successfully executed on the Smart Card.
Users of ccid are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
