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: 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.

'makepkg' complains about the PGP signature.

I have managed to fix that problem by installing 'seahorse'. Then from within 'seahorse' I have used the menu 'Remote → Find Remote Keys ...' and then looked for 'belgian'. That search returns among others the PGP keys: 'Belgian eID Automatic Signing Key - Continuous builds' and 'Belgian eID Automatic Signing Key - Offical releases'.

I have imported both these keys, but I suppose the 'Continous builds' would be sufficient for this package. Then, after setting 'trust' for these keys, 'makepkg' runs successfully.

Glad to see both GPG signing and SSL cert were fixed. Keep up the good work.

The developer contacted me, the fingerprint can be found here:

See the comment below you, they are using a different key than the official release key. I'll ask them where we can verify this key.

PGP signature cannot be verified. When trying to import the public key 824A5E0010A04D46, the fingerprint does not match the one mentioned on the developer's website.

Alad, I just replaced the SSL Cert.. (blushes).

Wouter (see IRC) also reminds us that the sources are now GPG signed (with the continuous build key, not the official release key)

Updated to v4.1.4. Please note the source was changed to the developer snapshots below, but the SSL certficate expired on July 29th. As a -temporary- workaround, I'm using curl's insecure mode. If you don't like it, ask upstream to GPG sign the sources.

Updated (also, it's eid-viewer that depends on java, not eid-mw)
