TITLE: IDeALT, the National Identity Program

Presentation slides: Media:AFSec20131113-Bohlin-Hansen-IDeALT.pdf

ABSTRACT: This talk describes the status of the national ID cards program. The introduction of a new national ID card is justified by the need for strengthening the robustness of credentials where it is relatively "easy" to forge identity such as for emergency passports, driving licenses and credit cards. Law enforcement agencies are currently wasting considerable time and are at risk of making mistakes when identifying individuals because existing identity credentials often can not be trusted. The goal of the national ID card is to enable robust and timely identification of individuals.


Annar Bohlin-Hansen is police inspector, and manager for IDeALT, the national identity program.

Jørn Anders Jenssen is special adviser for the PoID 2016 project.
