  8. 8. Unique Identifiers• 2 types of unique identifiers 1.unique numbers for persons 2.unique numbers for identity documents travel documents virtual tokens• identifiers make it easy to present and prove identity• identifiers enable eGov by means of information exchange even without involving the citizen
  9. 9. Identity Documents and their use• Most countries with e-services policy use e-ID card as key identifier : – Need for physical control in Moldova – Need for travel document (ID being much cheaper than a passport) – Biometrics storage ? – Off-line ID checking (rental, banks, etc.) – Mobile authentication (CR-principle eg Portugal) • Can also be done without e-ID card – Most average users don’t have a smartphone yet • Discussion client- vs server-side mobile e-ID
  10. 10. Identity Documents & Tokens• documents or tokens are carriers for identity information• a secure ID card usually contains – unique ID number – unique card number number – identity data – photo, biometric data• an e-ID card is the typical base tool to identify and authenticate a person
  11. 11. Mobile Identity• Perfectly in-line with Moldova’s strategy• Is very complementary -> derived mobile identity
  12. 12. Registration• Issuing ID documents or ID tokens relies on a reliable first-time registration procedure to establish the true identity of the citizen• Registration for other ID documents or tokens relies on ID cards as initial proof of identity (« Mother Identity »)
