Gemalto chosen to deliver ambitious new eID program in JordanAmsterdam, )
The enrollment system will be deployed in 100 civil status and passport offices, enabling MOI staff to capture the personal and biometric data of citizens for duplication-free entry onto the National Registry. Gemalto systems will also be employed to personalize and issue smart cards at 25 dedicated centers. The citizen's details are both laser engraved in the card and stored within its embedded microprocessor to enable officials to verify beyond doubt the identity of the holder.
The new eIDs combine state-of-the-art digital and graphical security features and offer the Jordanian government the ability to seamlessly add new card use cases after issuance. As a result, it can leverage on initial investment and develop new secure eGov services and applications that improve service standards and reduce administrative costs.
"For the Kingdom of Jordan, improving security, slashing ID fraud and creating a trusted infrastructure for online access are all high priorities on the agenda," said Mrs Majd Shweikeh, Minister of Information, Communication and Technology. "The new Jordan eID card will strengthen the infrastructure required for digital signature and will enable the addition of new eGovernment Services onto the card when they are available."
"Gemalto has the resources necessary to deliver a turnkey solution, along with millions of eID documents to a tight lead time," said Frédéric Trojani, Executive Vice President for Government Programs at Gemalto. "As well as affording greater protection to its citizens, Jordan's adoption of this smart government platform promises a new era for the eTransformation of the country."
