    identity documents issued worldwide

A secure identity is fundamental to a safe and trusted world. Drawing on our expertise in biometrics and artificial intelligence, we help governments and private organizations provide people with a trusted identity for life.

IDEMIA’s identity management solutions allow governments and private organizations to leverage a state-issued identity as a “root of trust”. This not only protects people in their daily lives, but also nurtures the digital economy by providing a trusted foundation for its growth. Likewise, our identity solutions help governments to streamline their processes and develop new communication channels with the people they serve.

End-to-end identity management systems and trusted ID credentials

IDEMIA’s bespoke identity solutions accommodate each country’s specific identity needs, for example through Public-Private Partnerships. Our ID credentials, such as national ID cards, passports, and driver licenses, include the most advanced security features available on the market, as we aim to protect people’s personal data from all types of fraud.

Secure digital identity systems

IDEMIA’s modular approach accommodates each country’s specific regulatory environment. It enables the deployment and management of a reliable digital identity system, either based on an existing government-held identity database or a national ID document. We use biometrics to ensure the highest level of security for the onboarding, verification, issuance, and authentication of a person’s identity, in compliance with the local regulatory framework.

Enrollment and authentication

When it comes to ID document issuance and keeping a civil registry up to date, it is crucial to verify the identity of citizens or travelers during the civil identity enrollment process. Whether for voter verification, identity control at borders, or for public safety purposes, using biometrics is by far the most convenient and reliable means of enrolling citizens and subsequently identifying and authenticating them. In India, for instance, we help manage 1.2 billion identities in the framework of Aadhaar, the largest biometric program in the world.

At IDEMIA we make it our mission to provide bespoke identity management systems to governments around the world. With our identity solutions, biometric technologies, and fraud-resistant ID credentials, we are committed to improving the safety of individuals and facilitating their travels.
