IDEMIA to supply Morocco’s national electronic ID cards

Issue 1 2020 News

IDEMIA has signed a strategic contract with Morocco’s Direction Générale de la Sûreté Nationale (National Security Government Department – DGSN) to supply the country’s latest national electronic ID cards and introduce a secured digital identity online services platform.

Backed by DGSN’s new digital identity national system, Moroccans will be able to access online services in a secured environment. IDEMIA will provide DGSN its digital authentication platform with a view to facilitating online correspondence between Moroccans and government agencies or private service providers, who seek to benefit from the new national ID card’s digital features.

The new biometric ID card will accelerate rollout of Morocco’s online services and will ramp up development of the digital economy. The card will deliver rock-solid online authentication and transaction security for all Moroccans. As a result, all online services will be able to tap into DGSN’s new digital identity national system while providing citizens user-friendly, fast and secure access that safeguards the privacy of their personal data on their electronic ID cards.

IDEMIA currently produces highly secure identity documents, including national ID cards, passports, vehicle registration documents, driving licences and healthcare cards, in countries around the world apart from Morocco, such as the US, Estonia and the Netherlands. It also supplies digital identity management systems to governments and public and private sector organisations.
