Hi Daniel,

i'm not (yet) familar with eIDAS and can't answer that question.

For your second question. To obtain a sig3 from Governikus you need
a german id-card an id-card card reader and the software AusweisApp2.

For a sig3 from the well known CT Magazin in Germany you have to show
up at their booth (like CeBit Fair, Hannover Fair or Funkaustellung in
Berlin) with your id-card and a filled out form (downloadable at their
web site)
