It's supposedly possible to turn the X.509 key on the eID card into something that can be used as an SSH key (though I wouldn't know exactly how); also, with the (provided) mozilla plugins you can use it to sign emails, etc. However, the eidviewer (what this query is about) has nothing to do with all that. A typical use case for the eidviewer is a hotel reception where identity information needs to be stored and/or printed out. That's something entirely different...So, wouldn't they be in the same catagory as pgp or openct thingy?I could do that, except that none of the binaries in opensc, openct, or gnupg have a menu entry.
What about th eGUI frontends? For me, GnomePGP is in Apps -> Tools.
