I've started out with Cyberflex e-gate 32K cards and Reflex USB v.2
readers, but it looks like the Reflex USB v.2 readers may be difficult
to support if they require flashing. I assume the other Reflex readers
are well-supported on Linux?

Had a look through the archives, but couldn't see anything relating to
this (the archives for the last few years do not appear to searchable,
so I may have easily overlooked the relevent thread).
More generally, I'm trying to add smart-card support for a Linux-based
product. I'll be using OpenSSL, and through it PKCS#11, so my
understanding is that the PKCS#11 drivers in OpenSC are they way to go.
This then leads to pcsc-lite, and the need for the relevent reader
driver. Or are there other libraries I can be using to get from
OpenSSL/PKCS#11 to a smart-card reader on Linux?
