9th October 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, October 9, 2013: HID Global, a worldwide player in secure identity solutions, today announced it has joined the Secure Identity Alliance, the industry’s reference body for secure documents and eServices.

HID Global brings expertise to the secure government-to-citizen ID market worldwide with solutions that provide advantages over traditional paper-based documents, such as more cost-effective administration, faster and easier verification, greater durability, increased data privacy and greater protection against counterfeiting.

The Alliance was created in May 2013 to promote the usage of government-issued e-documents, such as national identity, health cards, driving licenses and e-passports, for increased security and to encourage deployment of secure, convenient online services to strengthen end-user privacy. Since its launch, the Alliance has created two working groups for “Secure Documents” and “Digital Identity” to tackle the ongoing security, identity and privacy challenges faced by governments.

Rob Haslam, Vice president of government ID solutions with HID Global, said, “HID Global is honored to be a part of an organization that shares our vision of enabling governments around the world to successfully design and implement secure electronic identity solutions that benefit both national and cross-border security and enhance citizen engagement. Through the Alliance, we hope to play an instrumental role in helping governments streamline the integration and interoperability of new systems and processes – ultimately making government-to-citizen ID programs more secure and effective.”

HID Global provides governments worldwide with highly customizable identity solutions for citizen ID programs. The company participates in more than 36 e-passport and 49 national e-ID programs and has delivered more than 150 million eIDs in over 50 countries including national/permanent resident IDs, driver licenses, e-passports, healthcare and vehicle registration. HID Global offers one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of interoperable eID products and solutions, including professional consulting services, data capture, card management/issuance solutions, world-leading credentials and e-documents, readers, inlays, prelaminates, LaserCard optical security media and FARGO ID card printers/encoders.

The Alliance has also announced the addition of American Banknote Corporation (ABnote) and Trueb AG as new members of the Alliance. These new members join Secure Identity Alliance founding members Gemalto, Morpho (Safran), Oberthur Technologies and 3M.

Frederic Trojani, Chairman of the Board of the Secure Identity Alliance, said, “I am delighted to welcome HID Global, ABnote and Trueb AG to the Secure Identity Alliance. With eGovernment initiatives on the rise, electronic identification has become a real catalyst for the rapid adoption of online services. Convenience, privacy protection and security are the three pillars of trust in modern, efficient electronic government services. The need for an independent forum able to address common areas of interest for all public and private stake holders is clear to build today’s generation of online services.”
