The ecosystem to manage your population’s identity

A trusted, legal identity is the basis to access rights and benefits such as education, voting, healthcare, financial services or welfare benefits. Yet today, one in three children under five is unenrolled and still over one billion people in the world still lack a form of legal ID altogether. Governments therefore face the growing challenge of owning a unique and trustworthy identity management system, enabling the inclusion of their whole population.

IDEMIA designed its IDway solution to efficiently manage the identities of all the different population subsets, such as citizens, residents, visitors and refugees. This solution orchestrates various ID registries - Civil Registry, Document Registries, Social Welfare Registry etc.

IDEMIA IDway consists of several interoperable components - Civil Registry, Vital Statistics, National Population Registry, Biometric System and an integration platform - which work together as a unified system. Governments can thus provide every citizen with sustainable credentials for a strong and unique legal ID from birth and throughout life, recognizable by public and private services.

A trusted identity from birth

Our solution provides every individual with a secure unique legal identity from birth, valid for life. This unique foundational identity is a robust basis to authenticate individuals and deliver trustworthy credentials.

Seamless integration

Each individual’s identity is managed throughout different domains such as Civil Registry, ID Card Registry, Passport Registry, social welfare registry etc. Information and resources are pooled and not duplicated. This ensures data protection and privacy whilst keeping continuously up-to-date information.


Each component is modular to specific country needs thus allowing the overall solution to be tailor-made, adapted to existing infrastructure as well as evolutive when necessary without needing to replace the entire system.
