Using the Austrian 'Buergerkarte' under Linux

Disclaimer This web page is written primarily in English, but uses German words originating from the Austrian law. There seems to be little point in artificially translating these terms when they are special definitions of a law written in German. I have tried to explain the terms when I first use them - if something is unclear, feel free to send me an email. Introduction Since the beginning of 2000, the Austrian government has begun introducing its digital signature scheme in form for the so called “Bürgerkarte”.
