The AusweisApp2 (since November 2014 successor of the AusweisApp) is a free application software for the PC to use electronic authentication via the Internet with the new German identity card and the electronic residence permit or their online identification function. This makes it possible for citizens in Germany to identify themselves easily and securely on the Internet - for example, to deal with administrative formalities online.
The software establishes an encrypted connection between the identity card or the electronic residence permit, the card reader and the eID server on the other side. The IDApp2 serves to securely perform the procedure of certificate and authenticity checks and to offer the citizen an interface for using the online ID function.
The snap delivers its own version of the pcsc-lite card-daemon.
To ensure full functionality two additional interfaces have to be connected:
sudo snap connect ausweisapp2-ce:mount-observe sudo snap connect ausweisapp2-ce:removable-media
