Protecting identities

Although we are seeing a growing number of mobile and digital identity solutions rolled out around the world, it would be a mistake to think that physical identity documents are now obsolete.

In fact, physical documents are still the cornerstone for a number of successful identity schemes, ensuring that citizens always have the means to protect or prove their identity while benefiting from rights and fulfilling responsibilities: driving, traveling, moving freely, working, securing a place to live, accessing healthcare, receiving support, voting, and more.
