development library to read identity information from the Belgian eID card

The Belgian electronic ID card contains two types of data: on the one hand, there's the X.509 keys that can be used by the owner of the card to perform authentication and to make digital signatures; on the other hand, the card contains digital versions of the identity information, digitally signed by the government.

This library allows the user to read out the identity information, to verify the signature, and to verify its certificate against an online CRL or similar technology.

To read out the X.509 keys, please see the libbeidlibopensc2 package.

This package contains the development files for libbeid2.

Please read the README.Debian file in the libbeidlibopensc2 package for information on setting up your system so that it can read from smartcards.

Package version:2.6.0-6


belpic (2.6.0-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Since 2.6.0-4, there is no more support for OpenCT-based cardreaders in
    this Debian package. The support for OpenCT-using cardreaders was a
    Debian-only patch, anyway, which seemed to be causing problems more than
    it solved. If you were using an OpenCT-only cardreader before, you will
    no longer be able to use it with these packages. Sorry 


belpic (2.6.0-6) unstable; urgency=high

  * Remove libopenct1-dev builddep, and single leftover linkage to
    libopenct. This code was not actually active anymore since 2.6.0-4,
    but there were some leftovers.
  * Copy reader-pcsc.c over from a more recent version of opensc;
    interfaces have changed since this code was written, and otherwise
    it wouldn't compile anymore.
  * Include fix
