Card Readers

To use the new functions you need a card reader with a certified driver and software. The reader retrieves the selected data from the chip and transmits them to the provider in encrypted form after you have entered the six-digit PIN. You can find a list of available readers here.

Basic, standard or deluxe - it's up to you!

Logo

The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) recommends secure readers. They can be identified by the ID card logo printed on them. Readers tested by the BSI are additionally labelled with the following certificate:

BSI-Zertifikat TR-03119

You can find practical information on Internet security and current threats at the website of the Federal Office for Information Security BSI für Bürger (in German).
