AusweisApp2-CE - Tool for the german nPA (Community Edition)

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.

Important notice:

Because the snap needs an unconfined access to the "pcsc"-daemon the snap must be installed with the "classic"-parameter

sudo snap install ausweisapp2-ce --classic
