  Description     : Estonian ID card browser plugin

EstEID browser plugin is a cross-browser plugin that accesses
Estonian national ID card features via JavaScript.
This package provides the plugin for NPAPI-compatible browsers
such as Chromium, Epiphany and Firefox.
The plugin is used by web pages to sign legally-binding documents
using the digital certificate that is accessed via PIN2.
In order to protect the user's privacy, only web pages that 
appear in a "whitelist" can access the card. For unlisted pages,
a yellow notification bar appears.
The plugin also implements a compatibility mode to support 
existing web pages that utilize the legacy signature API.


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

The whole suite is comprised of the following source packages:
