Secure Identification

Building efficient, secure communications infrastructures and processes through ID

Smart cards and biometrics have become robust, convenient, cost-effective technologies used to build first class security infrastructures to identify and assign privileges to a broad range of users (citizens, consumers, employees, patients and more).

When does strong authentication become the optimum choice for rapidly verifying ownership or eligibility of services? What approaches are used to establish confidentiality, message integrity and user authentication? What are the challenges of taking ID to the next level of credentialing and electronic functions?
