The Republic of Latvia, located in the Baltic Region of Northern Europe, is setting up a new infrastructure for the issue and verification of electronic identification documents.
Germany-based company secunet Security Networks AG will provide the software for the new Latvian passport and migration information system required for the issue of electronic identification and visa documents.
The newly established system is based on secunet’s eID PKI Suite solution. The suite contains not only the PKI components required for the issue of identity documents in accordance with the ICAO specifications, but also the EAC PKI components for the verification of electronic documents.
This new Latvia PKI system will enable verification checks of passports and identity documents at border control posts and in all Latvian embassies across the globe.
