Norway taps Gemalto for electronic IDs
The new documents will be supported by Gemalto’s Allynis Issuance and Coesys Case Management system which manage all the steps of the citizen application from biometric enrollment to the issuance, delivery and post-issuance of the document. The solution has been designed to comply with ICAO best practices related to enrollment, document verification, identity proofing and lifecycle management. Start date for this program is 2018.
For an easy user experience, the citizen can start the application from home, book an appointment online and register presence in the queue in a very simple way when visiting a government branch. The citizen is guided through the different steps of the document lifecycle: for instance, they will be notified when his/her current document is about to expire or when the newly requested document is ready to be collected.
The contract is to supply the third generation ePassports built on Gemalto’s existing ePassport solution for Norway, and will incorporate a range of advanced security features. The microprocessor is embedded in Gemalto’s Sealys polycarbonate datapage, featuring a range of high-end visual security features.
