Dear all,

I am very pleased to announce the release of SC-Corporate-ID.

SC-Corporate-ID is a commercial Smart Card security system that can be
extended by the user using the Python language.

SC-Corporate-ID is written in Python and wxPython for the most part (except
for the PCSC wrapper, the GINA dll and the crypto) on the PC side, and
in .... other languages on the Smart Card side. The PCSC driver (PYCSC) and
the crypto (PYCRYPTO) are public domain packages (PYCSC was slightly
modified by us)

SC-Corporate-ID is an off-the shelf package: you can use it as is; yet, as
it is based on a set of libraries (SCF), it can be modified and customized
by the company using it (the restriction being the capabilities of the code
in the Smart Card which would have to be modified by us).

SC-Corporate-ID can be used for PC Access, Data Security (file
encryption/signature), Company Electronic Purse and Corporate
Identification. Some of its possible extentions are Building Access and WEB

SC-Corporate-ID cards can be delivered pre-programmed (firwmare + data) or
simply with the firmware so the user may handle its own cards issuance.

Although it is a commercial product, SC-Corporate-ID intends to be a true
low cost security solution for Corporations.

SC-Corporate-ID will soon be followed by a School/University ID as well as
an Health Card ID.

Philippe Martin
