1 Introduction

Scute is a PKCS #11 implementation for the GnuPG Agent using the GnuPG Smart Card Daemon. Currently, OpenPGP and PIV cards are supported.

Scute enables use of the OpenPGP smart card or a PIV smart card in applications supporting PKCS #11 compliant security tokens. The main application at this time is client authentication in Mozilla-based web browsers. In the future, other applications will be supported.
