So my hobby of the moment is playing with the smart card functionality of my VISA card from Providian. I've managed to get the PC/SC driver software compiled and hacked the driver for the Gemplus PC430 reader to work with the PC432 Providian distributes. Now when I put the card in the daemon recognizes that it's there. Now it's just a matter of finding anything I can do with it...

There are PC/SC Perl bindings... Now if I could only understand them... Who knows where that would lead.
