Norway Chooses Gemalto's Fully Integrated Solution for eID and ePassport
A complete citizen application management system will be introduced, as well as first national eID and third generation ePassports

AMSTERDAM, Oct 11, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, has been chosen by the National Police Directorate of Norway (POD) to supply Sealys eID cards, residence permit cards and third generation Sealys ePassports. The new documents will be supported by Gemalto's Allynis Issuance and Coesys Case Management system which orchestrate all the steps of the citizen application from biometric enrolment to the issuance, delivery and post-issuance of the document. The solution has been designed to comply with ICAO[1] best practices related to enrollment, document verification, identity proofing and lifecycle management. Start date for this program is 2018.

For a smooth user journey, the citizen can start the application from home, book an appointment online and register presence in the queue in a very intuitive way when visiting a government branch. The citizen is guided through the different steps of the document lifecycle: for instance, they will be notified when his/her current document is about to expire or when the newly requested document is ready to be collected.

The contract is to supply the third generation Sealys ePassports built on Gemalto's existing ePassport solution for Norway, and will incorporate a wide range of advanced security features. The microprocessor is embedded in Gemalto's Sealys polycarbonate datapage, featuring a range of high end visual security features.

"The introduction of eID cards and third generation ePassports represents another significant step forward for the national plan to enhance the safety and convenience of everyday life for Norwegians," said John Kristian Thoresen, Assistant Chief of Police for the National Police Directorate of Norway. "Gemalto is supplying a comprehensive solution that creates a seamless pathway from registration to fulfillment."

"Norway is firmly established as an early adopter of advanced identity and travel credentials," said Frederic Trojani, Executive Vice President for Government Programs at Gemalto. "By extending the scale and scope of our partnership to include eIDs and residence permit cards, as well as Coesys Case Management, POD has grasped the opportunity to simplify and streamline the delivery of this far-reaching project." "The eID cards and passports both feature award-winning artwork by the Neue Design Studio that reflects the minimalist beauty of the Norwegian landscape," he added.
