Reading Belgian national identity card

As you may know all Belgians have an identify card. We recently added classes for CryptoTokenKit framework on Mac and translated a sample project from Swift to Xojo to read those card. Works very well to get basic information, address details and the picture of the person.

The same could have been done with our SmartCard classes. And as those classes use the PCSC interface on MacOS, Windows and Linux you could even get it done cross platform.

But for newer development on MacOS Apple prefers to use their own frameworks, so we got the CryptoTokenKit plugin part in the Mac64bit plugin.
