Finland National Electronic Identification Card not on Wikipedia
« Reply #1 on: March 08, 2008, 06:46:58 pm »

Quote
Fort Wayne-based TrustBearer Labs announced Friday it will provide software to improve the usefulness of the Finnish National Electronic Identification Card.

Finns can now take their “smart” national ID cards, which have computer microchips, insert them into a card reader on their computer, and use their cards to log on to Web sites that use TrustBearer’s OpenID system. Using the national ID card and a PIN selected by the user is more secure than traditional user names and passwords because OpenID uses data from the cards to confirm identity, said David Corcoran, chief executive of TrustBearer Labs.

TrustBearer Labs, formerly known as the Identity Alliance, employs eight in Fort Wayne.

India update - 2012
« Reply #2 on: April 06, 2008, 10:46:02 am »

On the main thread the wikipedia link said India was  piloting an ID card system.

Here is the news update:

Quote
Finger biometrics and photographs will be integrated with individual records in the Multi-Purpose National Identity Cards (MNIC) to be issued to each citizen after the next census in 2011.

Since the logistical and financial requirement for the national roll-out will be "enormous", it has been proposed that data collection for preparation of National Population Register (NPR) for the country would be undertaken along with the 2011 census.
The Smart Cards, as the MNIC is popularly known, will carry a National Identity Number and will be given to every citizen above 18 years.
The MNIC project runs parallel to the Unique Identification Scheme being implemented by the Department of Information Technology at the behest of the Planning Commission.
Now, Smart Cards with finger biometrics

Italy may require fingerprints by 2010 of all citizens
« Reply #4 on: July 17, 2008, 08:00:13 am »

Quote
Italy may demand all its citizens be fingerprinted, a move aimed at defusing widespread criticism of government plans to force Roma people and their children to provide fingerprints as a way of tackling criminality.

A parliamentary committee agreed on Wednesday that from 2010 all identity cards, which Italians already have to carry, should include the fingerprints of the bearer. The measure still has to pass through parliament.

"It will defuse the Roma question, (fingerprints) will be taken from everyone," opposition deputy Antonio Misani was quoted as saying by the Corriere della Sera newspaper's website.

Interior Minister Roberto Maroni, a member of the staunchly anti-immigrant Northern League party, is pushing the measure to fingerprint people living in Roma camps. He has said only people who cannot provide valid identification will be fingerprinted.

Germany proposes smart card ID also used as internet authentication device
« Reply #5 on: August 01, 2008, 08:28:39 am »

according to German Wikipedia):
Quote
It is compulsory for all German citizens age 16 or older to possess either a "Personalausweis" (identity card) or a passport, but not to carry it. While police officers and some other officials have a right to demand to see one of those documents, the law does not state that one is obliged to submit the document at that very moment.

now for 2010 a contactless smart card is proposed:

Quote
The German government has proposed and electronic ID card that would use contactless smart card technology, according to a report from Electronics Supply & Manufacturing. The new credential would be similar to the electronic passport, but could also carry an electronic signature that could be used for online authentication.

Berlin-based Bitkom, a trade organization in favor of the plan, said the ID could enable access to online services, such as banking, shopping and electronic citizen services.
But certain members of Berlin Parliament are not in favor of the credential. The Greens criticized that an official document will be coupled with arrangements with private companies.
Both could also contain fingerprint biometrics, though it would be voluntary with the ID card, while it’s compulsory with the passport. Rollout of the card could start in 2010.
Germany proposes smart card ID
http://www.secureidnews.com/news/2008/07/31/germany-proposes-smart-card-id/

Quote
MUNICH, Germany —The German federal government has announced to introduce an electronic ID card similar to the electronic passport already in use. In contrast to the passport, the ID card will optionally carry an electronic signature which enables it to use it as an internet authentication device, potentially replacing PIN and TAN based transaction procedures. For the industry, the device will create a significant additional business.

The ID card which is scheduled for roll-out in 2010, triggered different echoes from data privacy advocates and from the industry. The Greens in the Berlin parliament criticized that an official document will be coupled with arrangements aiming at private commerce. In addition, data security experts expressed concerns that the fingerprint data, which can be are stored voluntarily on the chip, could be abused.

Technically, the electronic content of the ID card is to a large extend identical to the smart card chip in the electronic passport already in use in several countries.
The specifications are defined in the European CEN TC224 standard, which also covers protocols and security mechanisms.
The ID card, however, stores two sets of data separated from each other. The first set is the same as used in the e-passport. The second set contains the electronic signature and the authentication routine.
The current design goes back to specifications created in 2004; similar approaches are in discussion in the UK, Spain, France and Italy.

Israel update - biometrics
« Reply #6 on: August 03, 2008, 08:08:44 am »

Quote
Israel: The Teudat Zehut is first issued at age 16 and is compulsory by 18.
from Wikipedia

Quote
Government approves bill calling for creation of database of all Israeli citizens. Data to include fingerprints, computerized facial features embedded on IDs, passports
The motion, dubbed the "identification card, travel papers and biometrics database bill,"

The new bill called for embedding biometric data, such as fingerprints and computerized tags of facial features, in Israeli IDs and passports; as well as for the establishment of a database which would include biometric data on all Israeli citizens.

The data would be used by the Ministry of Interior in its future plans to create "smart", forgery-proof identification papers and passports; and would also allow authorities to identify people who are not carrying any means of identification, especially in cases of a mass disaster, should the need to identify fatalities arise.


"Forming such a database would harm the citizens' basic right to privacy," read the letter; adding that such a database would be at constant risk of being hacked into by hostile elements, and would make "potential criminals out of every law-abiding citizen."


08.03.2008
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3577046,00.html




Quote
The current bill declares that the production of fake passports and identity cards is a growing phenomenon that increases illegal immigration and criminal and economic crimes and poses a serious security risk. Ordinary identity cards and passports, it says, are easy to counterfeit, and many groups are interested in such fake documents.

Each phony identity card or passport sells for a few hundred to a few thousand shekels, while original cards and passports sell for much more.

The Interior Ministry said that in 2007, more than 155,000 Israeli identity cards were reported stolen, lost or destroyed - more than during the previous year.

India - GPS data in National ID card to show physical residence
« Reply #7 on: August 25, 2008, 03:47:06 pm »

Quote
Once the census data is available, it will be clubbed with the electoral rolls and GPS data will be added in the chips of multipurpose national identity cards to be issued to all voters.
The identity card will then enable the Election Commission not only to record movement of voters to locate their residence at the time of polling, but it will also detect anybody trying to cast a bogus vote on behalf of any other voter, EC sources said.

The system will also cut down the time taken to revise the electoral rolls, as it will provide an automatic update based on the voter’s location.

The Election Commission (EC) plans to link the electoral rolls with census data in the next census due in 2011, and use GPS-based Geographical Information Systems (GIF) to automatically record the voter migration or shifting of residence.

Oman National ID card/ E-Purse embedded within

Quote
the state-of-the-art e-Purse embedded on national ID and resident cards is the first of its kind in the region

'Being an identity card, the e-Purse always remains with citizens and residents. Whenever e-Purse is used, the identity of the user is verified and the government can track each transaction.


Quote
During the first phase of the project, the e-Purse can be loaded with cash only at BankMuscat branches, with the Point of Sale (PoS terminals) network of the bank facilitating card-based transactions at ROP directorates, ministries and government establishments.

In the second phase, the customers will have it even easier — the e-Purse can be loaded with cash at other banks too.

and now the update:
Germany deploys contactless national ID


Quote
Germany began issuing the new contactless national ID to citizens in November. [2010]

Quote
The country expects to issue 60 million cards over the next 10 years to replace existing paper documents, says Rudy Stroh, executive vice president of the ID business and country manager for Germany at NXP Semiconductors. NXP is providing the chip–its 128-kilobyte SmartMX secure contactless microcontroller–for the German e-ID.

Quote
“The contactless technology used in the e-ID enables strong privacy protection,” Stroh says.

Quote
The first difference between the German ID card and other contactless smart cards is that is can only be read from four centimeters, whereas most other cards can be read from eight to 10 centimeters, Stroh says.

The chip is also PIN protected and will not release any personal information until the correct six-digit code has been entered.

Quote
When traveling to other countries fingerprint templates stored on the card are verified to ensure the identity of the cardholder. Use as a travel document is optional so citizens can choose whether or not to enroll and store fingerprint templates.

Quote
The credential can be used for access to government and commercial Web sites as well, explains Stroh, to digitally sign documents, auto fill forms, verify age and login to bank accounts and other services. Stroh estimates that 150 companies–including financial institutions, retailers, and airlines–are working on applications to take advantage of the card technology.
also see the similar National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace initiative proposed by the USA which is CLEARPASS for online transactions on the Internet:
http://thementalmilitia.com/forums/index.php?topic=27889.0

Quote
The German program uses the electronic passport standards developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization and can be used in place of a passport for travel between European Union countries. “It’s based on the ICAO EAS passport,” Stroh says.
This is convienent but the larger implications show that you will be tracked for travel further and further away.
