Benefits of Using Biometric Identification Management for eID Initiatives

  1. 1. Business Case:
  2. 2. Executive Summary e-ID is the electronic counterpart to a national identification card (NIC). In a changing world moving more towards online based services in both the public and private sectors, an ID is more than a proof of identity. The M2SYS AFIS e-ID solution can serve in multiple sectors (e.g. social security, education, telephony services, banking services, taxation) depending on the context of the deployment. 2
  3. 3. Problem Statement Developments of biometric technology are no longer in an embryonic stage and have been used successfully in the context of ID documents for over 10 years (28 January 2002) where approximately 89.5 million cards have been issued as of 2012. 33 National e-ID projects have already deployed and another 22 are in definition/specification phase and the e-ID system as a whole has few drawbacks. However, issues like data protection, privacy, information liability, access authority, and the quality of authentication remain heavily disputed issues.

One ID – Many Applications Application Layer of M2SYS e-ID Border Control e-passport National ID Voter Registration Latent Print Health Care & Welfare Public Safety Biometric Overview •Iris •Palm Vein •Fingerprint •Facial Capture Matching System •One-to-many Matching System •One-to-many Biometric Matching •Multi-platform for Parallel Matching One Biometric Database 8
  9. 9. Recommended Uses for M2SYS e-ID e-ID Core purpose: identify and authenticate citizens eSocial Access to social security services eHealth Access to health care services Public Safety Identifying criminal, forgery protection, & identity theft eVoting Registering to vote, and voting in elections to promote fairness Move from simple identification to multi-purpose card Broad coverage of governmental and private areas Driver: Create added value for the citizen M2SYS e-ID: One Card Multiple Use 9
  10. 10. Conclusion Growing security problems around the world are leading to more frequent requests for proof of identity. Biometrics in the context of ID documents has been researched and deployed for the last 10 years, proving to be an efficient, effective, and secure way to manage identities.
