I just came across with this article of March 4.

I cannot read German so google translating it. I do not know the fidelity
of it, but apparently the combination of German eID and OpenID was app
approved by the State Procurement Agency for authorization certificates
(VfB) so that official website operator can authenticate the users with
their eID card their legally. Correct me if I am wrong. Perhaps a German
reader can further explain what it is. I am also interested in how they
implemented the authorization certificate / terminal certificate portion.
