Open eCard-Team

The Open eCard Team consists of industrial and academic experts, which are providing a platform independent open source implementation of the eCard-API-Framework [BSI-TR03112], such that arbitrary applications can easily access arbitrary smart cards for authentication and signature purposes.

In a first project phase this framework will be used for realization of a lightweight, trustable and also easy to handle open source eID-client – so called Open eCard App [HPS+12]. The Open eCard Team is an open community, which invites all interested people and according institutions and organizations to participate.
