Special Session: eDocuments – have you been sold a “dud”?

Churchill Room


eDocuments – have you been sold a “dud”?
Governments around the world spend hundreds of millions of dollars on ultra-secure identity credentials for their citizens. But how can they be sure the documents they are issuing will be resistant to attack, cost effective, or remain viable for the lifetime of the document? The Secure Identity Alliance (SIA) has developed a free tool that can be used to self-certify the effectiveness of a secure document’s design (where, quite often, more security features do not equate to greater security). The tool has now received the backing of many of the leading developers in the industry. Attendees to this session will learn more about this tool, see a live demo and hear from these industry leaders as to why they think this potentially controversial certification approach can work.

Session led by:
Petri Viljanen, eDocuments Workgroup Member, Head of eSEC project, Senior Product Manager, Gemalto, Finland

Erik Van Dijk, Chairman of the SIA eDocuments Workgroup, Product Manager, IDEMIA, The Netherlands

Françoise Daniel, Secure Identity Alliance, IP and Standards Manager, Surys, France

Sébastien Tormos, Secure Identity Alliance, Director of Government Vertical Marketing, Entrust Datacard, France
