Sovereign nations around the world are grappling with a rising need for residency permit documents that meet the highest standards of forgery protection.
Yet citizens and control officers on the front lines for any such residency permit cards demand these documents be easy to use. The new harmonized EU residence permit, for example, is a smartcard-based document that stores biometric data securely. It replaces the previous format, which had proven inadequate in light of growing security needs.
These strategic considerations are, however, only the tip of the iceberg. The issuance process for residence permits represents another challenge. Solutions are required for the development of the card material, security features and the supporting operating systems, applications and cryptographic mechanisms. Issuing authorities must decide how to acquire personal data at their registration offices and how to transmit that data securely afterwards. Last but not least, those documents have to be personalized.
