Solution Will Drive Simplified, Secure Identification Management for
Governments Around the World
The HP NIS solution allows governments to build and quickly deploy at an
affordable price a complete, standards-based and technologically agile
infrastructure that meets their changing needs for security and identity
Going beyond simple secure identification and authentication
functionality, the solution enables modern national identification
systems to allow citizens to access e-government services and conduct
secure transactions. The solution also provides citizens with improved
secure and intelligent identity documents.
For example, with heightened security awareness at national borders, the
solution fulfills the new requirement to ensure traveler and citizen
credentials across an entire country or region.
In addition, the modular nature of the solution enables national and
regional governments to more easily plug in additional elements, such as
biometrics, to customize and balance the level of security and privacy
as defined by a government's policy and requirements.
Recent figures from industry analyst firm Morgan Keegan show that the
worldwide identity management market is approximately $4.8 billion and
is estimated to grow to approximately $10.7 billion in 2007.(1)
"The need to securely identify people moving across national and
international borders has never been more important than it is today,"
said Jim Ganthier, worldwide leader, Defense, Intelligence and Public
Safety, HP. "HP and Microsoft are working together to provide government
agencies the ability to access the integrated data streams needed to
securely identify people both in the physical and virtual worlds."
Built using HP's expertise in national identity systems, security
frameworks and public key infrastructures (PKI), the HP NIS can be fully
integrated into the HP e-government framework and integrated into a
nation's e-government services delivery framework. The solution
encompasses all the essential national identification system attributes
and functions, including:
* Online and offline enrollment of demographic and biometric data
through live capture
* Local request as well as regional/central verification and
* Multi-tier architecture
* Secure management of the document lifecycle
* Biometric and personalization subsystem integration
* Online and offline identity verification
* Fault tolerance and disaster recovery through design
