MRTD - Machine-readable travel document library

Machine-readable travel documents such as passports nowadays usually contain an RFID chip for storing various data. This library provides useful functions for reading out the data from these documents. This version of the library supports the Basic Access Control (BAC). It uses several cryptographic functions from either libgcrypt or libtomcrypt (depending on compile-time options) in order to do the necessary decryption of the content of the MRTDs. The key for the BAC-scheme is derived from the Machine-readable zone (MRZ) which is printed on the MRTD. . The library depends on libnfc for the hardware interaction and only devices supported by libnfc will therefore work.
