Open eCard Legacy Activator Browser Addons/ Extensions

These browser addons/ extensions are a temporary solution to address the missing support for the new eID activation as specified in TR-03112 Part 7. Their solution is to watch the browser content for object tags with type 'application/vnd.ecard-client' and forwards the object to the Open eCard localhost server.

This mechanism is not specified in TR-03112 and differs to it in the following aspects:

Note that you need at least version 1.0.1 of the Open eCard App to make use of the addon. The Open eCard App can be installed from http://jnlp.openecard.org.

Installation

The repository comes with a build script for each browser and OS, for example build_firefox.sh for Firefox on *nix and build_chrome.bat for Chrome on windows. On execution it creates the addon/ extension file in the build directory, which can be installed in the browser afterwards.

License

The source code for the addons/extensions is released under the GPLv3.
