This document specifies the application interface to SmartCards during the usage phase, used as Secure Signature Creation Devices (SSCD) to enable interoperability and usage of those cards on a national or European level. The specification is based on the EU directive on electronic signatures  and takes into account E-SIGN documents and standards mentioned in the scope to be respected. The functionalities described in this document map the general requirements of the EU directive to asymmetric techniques as required by the corresponding protection profile  and cover additional services, useful in signature environments.
