    Description

      Currently we have NFC module that seems to be only useful for reading smartcards, but cannot be used with USB-connected devices on desktop platforms. It would be good to support smartcard readers on desktop platforms too. Perhaps using pcsclite on Unix-like systems. PCSClite API is based on Windows PCSC API (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winscard/).

      It may be possible to use the same API as used for NFC, it will be misnamed then.

      Note that neard support (QTBUG-97943) seems much less usable on Linux, unless I'm missing something.

      PCSC is used by Qt-based AusweisApp, the code there does seem to support Windows too.

      macOS was using a fork of PCSCLite in the past for smart card access, that is not the case anymore. CryptoTokenKit is the API to use on macOS.
