Sophisticated ID card technology for the U.S. and Canada
Sophisticated ID card technology for the U.S. and Canada Veridos’ ID card footprint enabling secure identification
Today, a driver’s license is more than just a driving permit. In many countries, particularly those without national identification cards, a driver’s license provides vital proof of identity.
In both Canada and the U.S., the driver’s license programs are administered by the province or state and used as de facto identification documents for its citizens. For this reason, the credential's security features must be sophisticated, secure and difficult to replicate.
Many Canadian provinces and U.S. states are opting for Veridos identification solutions for their driver’s license requirements, as well as for their ID card, identity verification and health card needs.
