Bert's code


Some low-level code to access your eID: eidshow.tar.gz


You need to have the following installed to get it working:

dependencies eidshow:

  • opensc
  • libopensc2
  • libopensc2-dev
  • pcscd

depending on your device model, you need a card driver, e.g.:

  • libccid


make to make pkcs15dump make eidshow to make the eidshow binary


First make sure that your card will be managed by the pcscd daemon. You do this by

vim /etc/opensc/opensc.conf

and making sure that the line

reader_drivers = ....

is not commented and only contains your card reader, e.g.:

reader_drivers = pcsc;

after that, either execute pkcs15dump to get a basic smart card dump or ./eidshow to get the full eid output.
