The Citizen Card in most cases does not need its own software. A few versions however require separate Citizen Card software (Citizen Card environment, CCE) in order to run. (In this case, you will get an error message that the site http://127.0.0.1/... cannot be displayed.)
The table below provides an overview of available Citizen Card software:
|Mocca||yes||yes||yes (10.6 or higher Snow Leopard)||yes||Download|
|trustDesk basic (up to 2.8.1) (not for e-card G3)||yes||yes||yes (up to 10.5
The Austrian Federal Chancellery recommends Mocca software for the Citizen Card. It is free-of-charge, platform-independent (Java) and can be installed and started directly from here. (Note: a MOCCA CA certificate must be installed in your browser after installing this software. A dialog is started in the browser after MOCCA is installed. The CA certificate can also be installed later as described in the MOCCA Help pages).
You can install MOCCA simply through this link.
During installation, a Citizen Card environment icon is created automatically (pictured right) on the Desktop and a Start Menu entry is created (under e-Government). To view MOCCA help files, start MOCCA and right-click on the MOCCA symbol in the menu bar. You can also view them in your browser at http://localhost:3495/help/.
Java Cache Viewer: This allows you to uninstall (delete), update or manually start MOCCA (e.g. with a local firewall or a new Java version).
The entire installation is carried out by the a.sign full installer.
For PDF signatures, we have a separate page under: PDF Signatures
For smartcard or software certificates
CCE enables you to encrypt files and folders and place them in containers. For decryption, you can use your smartcard(at the moment the various versions of the austrian Citizen Card) as well as software-keys. Since Version 3, CCE does not require a Citizen Card environment anymore.
