Physical and digital ID credentials

We unlock trusted ID credential issuance, allowing citizens to conveniently access the physical and digital worlds.

ID credentials, such as national identity cards, passports, and driver’s licenses, give people a place in society. People use ID documents to prove who they are or where they come from, to fulfil their civic duties or cross borders. Legal identity documents give access to basic services such as healthcare, education, social welfare and the right to work, and yet 1.1 billion people still lack one today.

Governments bear the ultimate responsibility for providing individuals with proof of identity. It is crucial for every resident to have a robust and long-lasting ID document that also secures their identity.

Vast experience in producing ID documents

IDEMIA has decades of experience in providing a complete range of identity documents, having produced more than 3 billion worldwide to date, including ID credentials such as national ID cards, passports, vehicle documents, driver’s licenses, and healthcare documents.

Innovating to produce “hard-to-reproduce, easy-to-inspect” ID credentials

We are committed to individuals and governments alike, and constantly innovate to issue modern and reliable ID documents that comply with local and international regulations. By using advanced security features and a highly secure operating system, we offer our clients ID documents that are hard to reproduce. Furthermore, it is essential that ID credentials are easy to inspect by untrained individuals. To this end, we include several security features that can be unambiguously verified due to their striking optical effects. Additionally, Optical Machine Authentication (OMA) allows secure and quick verification of ID credentials using a document scanner.

Upgrading physical ID credentials to digital

Providing a physical and digital identity to every citizen is an efficient means for governments to facilitate and secure everyone’s access to government and commercial online services. This in turn strengthens and accelerates social and financial inclusion.

At every step in managing an individual’s digital identity, our expertise and advanced technology allow us to offer solutions that are customized to each country’s specific digital identity needs. This helps protect individuals’ data and privacy in line with the country’s regulatory framework. For example, IDEMIA’s Mobile ID, built on driver’s license data, has already been deployed in multiple states in the United States, with more to come.
