I am trying to read the Serial Number of a HID proximity card using the 'winscard.dll' APIs.
I have obtained c# wrapper code which is capable of performing

- GetAllReaders
Wraps the PCSC function
             LONG SCardListReaders(SCARDCONTEXT hContext,
                        LPCTSTR mszGroups,
                        LPTSTR mszReaders,
                        LPDWORD pcchReaders
            );


- Connect to a active reader
Wraps the PCSC function
              LONG SCardConnect(
                        IN SCARDCONTEXT hContext,
                        IN LPCTSTR szReader,
                        IN DWORD dwShareMode,
                        IN DWORD dwPreferredProtocols,
                        OUT LPSCARDHANDLE phCard,
                        OUT LPDWORD pdwActiveProtocol
                  );

- Send APDU commands to the reader and process the response
Wraps the PCSC function
             LONG SCardTransmit(
                  SCARDHANDLE hCard,
                        LPCSCARD_I0_REQUEST pioSendPci,
                        LPCBYTE pbSendBuffer,
                        DWORD cbSendLength,
                        LPSCARD_IO_REQUEST pioRecvPci,
                        LPBYTE pbRecvBuffer,
                        LPDWORD pcbRecvLength
                  );

I am interested in knowing:
1) How to get the ATR
2) how to obtain the UNIQUE SERIAL NUMBER of the smart card
