OpenSC backports

PPA description

OpenSC 0.17 plain unmodified backport from Debian Buster to current Ubuntu releases 16.04 and 17.04.

How it's built: https://blog.g3rt.nl/create-backport-package-ppa.html

Important note: Serialized IDs may be changed in 0.17. So, for example in OpenVPN you may need to update your 'pkcs11-id' setting.

Smartcard-HSM improvements for 17.04
====================================
Some upstream bugfixes since 0.16.

Smartcard-HSM improvements for 16.04
====================================
SO-PIN bugfix that I needed (https://github.com/OpenSC/OpenSC/issues/674). And many more bugfixes since 0.15.

Smartcard-HSM improvements for 14.04
====================================
(0.16 not updated with 0.17 version)
The above, plus:
Support for ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography) should be working in this version.
For more information: http://www.smartcard-hsm.com/2014/08/22/using-smartcard-hsm-with-ecc-and-opensc.html
Also refer to my blog article. https://blog.g3rt.nl/getting-started-smartcard-hsm.html

ePass2003 improvements for 14.04
================================
(0.16 not updated with 0.17 version)
Support for the ePass2003 device is improved over 0.13. Especially speed improvement is huge. For example, OpenVPN connect time with opensc-pkcs11.so is reduced from 58 seconds to 4 seconds (excluding time of typing token passphrase).
