Interfacing with Smart Card Reader

I'm starting to look to develop an interface to a smart card reader (to
read/write the credit card style cards with a chip installed).

I want this to be device independent so looking at the microsoft web site it
looks like I need to be looking at the USB CCID dll that microsoft delivers.

However, I want to write the interface in vb.net.

What I want to do is to use the smart card as a login - so I will save user
login information on the card and read it in when the card is inserted.
Once logged in, I want to automatically log out if the card is removed.

Can anybody point me to any dotnet library that I can use for this and any
further online reading that I might find useful?

Many thanks in advance
