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.

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.
