Since eid-mw now contains the middleware, the viewer and the Firefox extension, the eid-viewer package is now deprecated. eid-viewer has been merged into this package.

This package is making use of PGP signatures. Please make sure you understand that principle before filling a request: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GnuPG#Import_a_public_key. A GPG public key needs to be imported first, typically with a command like:

gpg --recv-key 824A5E0010A04D46

Receiving GPG keys might fail with the following error message: gpg: keyserver receive failed: Connection refused. If this happens, just check your DNS or use another one.

Update: 2017-03-29 We are now using the build server. As explained in the PKGBUILD file, only the binary files hosted on the dist server are signed, the source files are not in order to avoid confusion with less tech-savvy sysadmins. For security-conscious users like us, we need to use the build server instead. This is why it has been decided, this PKGBUILD won't use the dist server anymore, as long the build server remains publicly available. Using the build server also fixes issues with curl user-agent in the process.

Thank you for updating the eid packages.

I think I would prefer to get the sources from the official releases if that is possible.

I think it's better to take the official version as recommended on the official eid website. This is the usual policy for official Arch package. Especially for this package where there is no conceivable benefit to using a development version (the purpose is to be able to authenticate, nothing more). and which deal with security.

Hello there. I'm the new maintainer. Have just updated the package to 4.1.21 and am checking the hashes with SHA512 from now on.

Same comment as the eid-viewer package I have just updated. I have just realized the sources we are using come from the dist server which is a continuous environment server. Maybe we should be using the official releases from http://eid.belgium.be/en/using_your_eid/installing_the_eid_software/linux? Let me know what you think about this? Leave it as it or change the branch?

When I launch Firefox with the extension enabled, I get the message:

"The configuration of the Belgian identity card has failed. Is the eID installed?"

But the extension works nevertheless and I can authenticate on the Belgian website that need it. So strange... Anyone has an idea of what's going on?

Updating to 4.1.18 works.

Updating version to 4.1.18 and md5sum to d27be9ac6f63e864c539c50b3db76763 works.

@olive A mozilla.org-signed XPI is shipped (in plugins_tools/xpi/src/ inside the tarball) but not installed by the Makefile.

Chromium doesn't work due to https://github.com/Fedict/eid-mw/issues/9

olive commented on 2016-05-04 07:31

The add-on to be able to use authentification with firefox works but we had to force-enable it by setting xpinstall.signatures.required as false; then by enabling the add-on). This is a little worrying. What's the real cause of that? Does a signed version of the add-on exists.

By the way, I have been unable to authenticate with chromium. Does anyone have an idea?

You could also add this key by using gpg in the terminal, for example:

gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 824A5E0010A04D46

If you need to use a proxy you could use:

gpg --keyserver-options http-proxy=<proxy>:<proxyport> --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 824A5E0010A04D46
