Omnikey 5427 Mac Osx

The HID OMNIKEY 5427 CK is a PC/SC (CCID) compliant SmartCard reader.


brew install pcsc-lite

pcsctest only shows one reader:

MUSCLE PC/SC Lite Test Program

Testing SCardEstablishContext    : Command successful.
Testing SCardGetStatusChange
Please insert a working reader   : Command successful.
Testing SCardListReaders         : Command successful.
Reader 01: HID OMNIKEY 5427 CK
Enter the reader number          :

From what I can tell, “Reader 01″ is for regular SmartCard. We want "Reader 02" which is RFID.

Debian, rpi:

apt-get install libpcsclite1 libpcsclite-dev

driver HID does not seem to support 54527, pcsctest shows nothing now :/

rpi: sudo pip install pyscard
