Speaks at ID WORLD on Secure Identification

Coming soon

“Optimizing the security and durability of smart identity credentials”

Government identity and access control are forecast as the fastest growing global card segments over the next 5 years. In an effort to counter identity theft, protect privacy, provide more efficient and effective public services, and combat terrorism, identity credentials have become more secure and sophisticated. Incorporation of electronics enables enhanced credential security and functionality. As a result, smart cards are estimated to experience a 10% growth globally during 2010.

Security substrates serve as the functional core of smart identity credentials. Selecting the proper card construction and materials is critical to producing credentials with a 5-10 year service life, optimal security, and IC functionality. At the same time, program practicalities typically dictate some level of cost sensitivity. Nobody should have to sacrifice critical credential security and durability to avoid extreme material costs. Hybrid or composite card constructions are now the ideal solution – providing a new standard for the highest possible credential security, durability, and performance within acceptable system economics.

The speaker will outline key smart card substrate selection criteria, review critical independent laboratory test results, and compare system costs associated with competitive substrates. Hybrid or composite card constructions will be defined which exhibit more than twice the resistance to mechanical delamination and up to six times the flex durability of 100% polycarbonate cards while maintaining laser engraving capability.
