The driver is made of three layers:
- The PC/SC driver itself. The driver is said to be virtual, because it is not attached to a physical device wire-connected to the computer's motherboard.
SpringCard.SpringCore.NetBridge.dlllibrary that acts as a bridge between the network device and the virtual PC/SC driver,
- The SpringCard PC/SC Bridge application that controls the driver, provides configuration screens, and runs the library.
Integrators may use the library to implement their own bridging application.
The driver also comes with the PcscDiag application, to validate the installation and start communicating with smart cards through the reader.
