I finally got a new Belgian identity card. I immediately tried to get it to work on my Mac. This is what I needed to do:
– download the drivers for my smartcard reader (ACS – http://www.acs.com.hk/en/products/4/acr38-smart-card-reader)
– download the middleware for MacOs from the Belgian E-ID site. You don’t need it if you just want to use the e-id with Safari and Keychain, but it has a nice app that allows you to read the info on your card, and even change your pin.
I am able to view the data on my E-ID, but unfortunately, logging in to websites with the card does not work; on Taxonweb I get the message that Safari is not supported, logging in to Certipost just does not work. There is still some work to do…
It works with Windows Vista though … :–(
