Gemalto® gempc twin USB\VID drivers are required for the USB bus and USB connectivity hardware in the computer to operate correctly. A "driver" is the name given to the software interface that allows the operating system to communicate with the gempc twin hardware, it is the software "driver" that is in control of the USB hardware. If the smart card reader Universal Serial Bus device is not performing as expected then the driver is probably not installed or is broken. The list below consists of free downloads that are designed specifically to be used with the Gemalto® gempc twin device.
This library provides a PC/SC IFD handler implementation for the USB smartcard drivers compliant to the CCID protocol.This package is needed to communicate with the CCID smartcard readers throughthe PC/SC Lite resource manager (pcscd).For an exhaustive list of supported reader see _readers/This driver also supports the GemPC Twin connected to a serial port andthe GemPC Card (PCMCIA, through the suggested pcmciautils package) andGemplus GemPC Express (Express54 card).

5) After disconnecting smartcard reader, the following string can be found in syslog:...May 24 13:12:41 computer-name kernel: [75680.065939] usb 8-2: usbfs: process 2956 (pcscd) did not claim interface 0 before useMay 24 13:12:41 computer-name kernel: [75680.065996] usb 8-2: usbfs: process 2956 (pcscd) did not claim interface 0 before useMay 24 13:12:41 computer-name kernel: [75680.066000] usb 8-2: usbfs: process 2956 (pcscd) did not claim interface 0 before useMay 24 13:12:41 computer-name kernel: [75680.066057] usb 8-2: usbfs: process 2956 (pcscd) did not claim interface 0 before useMay 24 13:12:41 computer-name kernel: [75680.066211] usb 8-2: usbfs: process 2956 (pcscd) did not claim interface 0 before use
When you want to enable the smart card reader you have the message:" This VM is trying to claim a USB device that is already attached to another virtual machine (process:27307 /usr/sbin/pcscd). This operation will fail unless the device is first disconnected from the other VM. "
In my case vmware player proposes 2 smart card readers: "Gemplus USB SmartCard reader" and "Virtual Gemalto GemPC Twin 00 00". The first reader is the real USB device. The second reader is in fact the reader also available through the local PC/SC layer.
As you previously mentioned, Killing pcscd or using the virtual smart card is definitely an option but neither is hollistic since a user might want to share one of the physical smart cards between the guest and host but might want to passthrough another smart card reader.
Disabling pcscd before attaching reader to virtualbox removes the log flooding. But its very inconvinient. I have two card readers and I need to use one for host (ubuntu) and one for guest (windows). Is there a way to disable one card reader in pcscd to reserve it for guest windows?
Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of Europe requires Qualified Certificate for Qualified Electronic Signature (QCQES) to be stored on high-security devices. Such a device is the smart card on which the electronic signature certificate is stored together with the public and private keys. The information stored on the card can be accessed via a secret PIN code.
For these smart cards and card readers, only an electronic signature certificate (without software and drivers) is available and supported. It is the client who generates the key pairs, as well as stores the electronic signature certificate on the smart card. 2b1af7f3a8
