.tar.bz2 archives ready to be built
tar xzvf ccid-*.tar.bz2 cd ccid-* ./configure make make install
The latest README is at README.md.

You will need to also install:
In fact I may implement one of these features if you have a budget.
If you have a problem and want to get support from me you shall include the following information:
Then you shall generate a complete log (do not truncate it).
sudo LIBCCID_ifdLogLevel=0x000F pcscd --foreground --debug --apdu --color | tee log.txt
If you experience a crash of pcscd it is useful for me to have a backtrace.
$ gdb pcscd (gdb) set args --foreground --debug --apdu (gdb) run wait for the crash to happen (gdb) backtrace
Then copy/paste the complete output in your bug report.
If you have general questions or bug reports you should use the Pcsclite-muscle mailing list.
First search the mailing list archives. Maybe your probem has already been reported and solved. If you have not found a solution then subscribe to the Pcsclite-muscle mailing list and send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org..
To know if a smart card reader is CCID compliant and should be supported by this driver but is not listed bellow
tar xjvf ccid-x.y.z.tar.bz2 cd ccid-x.y.z ./configure make sudo ./src/parse > output.txt
and send me (email@example.com) the generated
If your reader is CCID compliant and you would like to add it to the list of readers I would also need:
All the readers are also included in a big matrix.
You can use an interactive reader selection tool at: Reader selection.
See Reader Selection: find the smart card reader you search for a presentation of the tool.

GNU/Linux using libusb 1.0.x and later
Apple includes my CCID driver (version 1.3.8, released in June 2008) since Leopard 10.5.6. See the mail from Shawn Geddis to have a list of changes.
See the evolutions of the CCID driver in Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9), Yosemite (10.10), El Capitan (10.11), Sierra (10.12), High Sierra (10.13), Mojave (10.14), Catalina (10.15), Big Sur (11.0), Monterey (12.0).
Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) and later are supported without patches. To build and install the driver you need to extract the archive and do:
./MacOSX/configure make sudo make install
The driver should work on Solaris.
I can't test is myself so patches are welcome if needed.
You can find a PC/SC-lite package form Oracle.
The driver is available in the freshport.
The driver is available in pkgsrc as security/ccid.
It may or may not work.
The drivers are also available as packages libccid
