Digital inclusion policies shall be based on providing individuals the necessary knowledge and capacities for an improved government-citizen communication and on the democratization of information through ICT’s with the goal of bridging inequalities, opening new possibilities of social growth and turning citizens aware on the use of networks and their content to gain knowledge and develop competences. For the attainment of this, it is first necessary to know and identify users univocally.

To speak about digital inclusion it is necessary to refer to social inclusion and security policies. The first ones have to be supported on favouring excluded individuals providing them with the necessary mechanisms and tools to improve their life quality. Social welfare shall be ensured to all citizens, with special attention to those in need that suffer from the lack of them, for which the Government needs to know and identify every citizen who is granted such benefit and be sure that it was received by those in need.

Citizen security policies must be based on policies for the prevention and dissuasion of possible crimes; and a substantial part of this policy is the correct and accurate identification of individuals, an essential function of the State for a precise verification of the identity.
