A national identity card system is one of the company’s flagship products, with security features that are fully compliant with international standards. This ensures that the identity cards cannot be forged. The ID Card System is an online, fully decentralized system and unique in that the entire process can be carried out either in a standard office or using mobile stations, enabling officials to register citizens wherever they are, even in the remotest of locations.
Every registration station, whether permanent or mobile, contains a computer for entering the citizens’ data, a digital camera, fingerprint scanner and a printer, so that once the registration process has been completed satisfactorily, an authorized ID card is printed out and issued to the citizen on the spot. The ID card is printed out on tamper-proof cards, which include a choice of security features. These features include holograms, a watermark in the background, a UV security panel, a digitized photograph, fingerprint security, dynamically shifting ink, a signature, a 2D barcode and an MRZ code.
