IDUtil allows using the ID-card above all for registration of autonomous guests, for example in the composition of a PowerPoint presentation or on a website. But the areas of application are not limited to the aforesaid and the module could be used for any Windows environment application for registering citizens. Personal identification takes place by means of the personal data file that can be freely read on the ID-card and the ID-card holder will not have to enter the PIN to use it.
The software is free of charge for downloading and using for everyone.
