Voting with Mobile-ID in Estonia

As you may know Estonia has really great digital identity infrastructure. Citizens can sign fully legal documents either with their ID-card or with  Mobile-ID. While the first is more common, the latter may need some explanation and examples. In both cases there are certificates on the chip (on the SIM-card) and they’re protected with strong crypto. The private certs and keys never leave the chip. For proper authentication 2 things are needed:
– your certificate (on the chip)
– your PIN-code that unlocks the private key on the chip
