application to read out information from the Belgian electronic ID card

This application allows the user to read out any information from a Belgian electronic ID card, by using libbeid and libbeidlibopensc to read the data from the card and parse it. Both identity information and information about the stored cryptographic keys can be read in a user-friendly manner, and can easily be printed out or stored for later reviewal.

The application verifies the signature of the identity information, checks whether it was signed by a government-issued key, and optionally checks the certificate against the government's Certificate Revocation List (CRL) and/or by using the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) against the government's servers.

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
