  Description     : C++ library for processing DDOC digital signatures (deprecated)

libDigiDoc is a library implementing a subset of the XAdES digital
signature standard on top of an Estonian-specific DDOC container format.
It allows one to create, sign, verify and modify DigiDoc XML containers.
This library was initially developed more than 10 years ago, back
when there was no adequate standard XML library to implement these
features. Nowadays, it only remains in use by libdigidocpp to provide a 
bug-for-bug backward-compatibility with older DigiDoc software that is
widely deployed and essential for accessing public services in Estonia.
For any other purpose, this library shall be considered as deprecated
and is best avoided whenever developing new DigiDoc software.
This package provides the shared libraries.


This package is one of 6 packages created by the Estonian government 
to support national ID cards on Free Software operating systems.

This particular package is one of the core libraries used to access
and manipulate the data on the ID cards.

The whole suite is comprised of the following source packages:
