Australian driving license project for Gemalto

Gemalto : 09 July, 2009  (Application Story)
New driving licenses for Queensland in Australia to make use of secure Gemalto card technology for the protection of driver information
Gemalto announces that it will together with Prime Contractor Placard provide several million Sealys electronic driving licenses to the Department of Transport and Main Roads in Queensland, Australia over a five year period with implementation commencing in 2010.

Currently, just over 3 million drivers in Queensland hold laminated driver licenses on which personal data is printed. The new cards will significantly improve the security and privacy of personal data by securely storing driver information electronically. This will make the new license difficult to copy and counterfeit and thereby minimizes the potential for identity theft.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads also plans to use this secure technology for the Adult Proof of Age, Marine Licence Indicator and Industry Authority cards.

The Department's Land Transport and Safety Executive Director Judy Oswin says moving to this technology will place Queensland at the forefront of delivering sophisticated, and secure technology, bringing together a range of applications that will ensure a state of the art product is delivered.

"The smartcard products will be a substantial leap forward in security over our existing laminated product. This is because of the strong level of authentication built into the physical product, as well as the business processes and systems that sit behind it; we will also be able to enhance electronic service delivery options for licence holders."

"Queensland is pleased to be leading the first smartcard driver license in Australia and believe that our ground breaking work will provide a sound basis for other states to build on, should they also decide to take on smartcard technology for their licence products," Ms Oswin said.

Tan Teck Lee, President, Gemalto Asia added, "We are honored to be able to play a part in introducing leading security technology into driver licenses issued by The Department of Transport and Main Roads. Gemalto is recognized as a leader in digital solutions boosting operational efficiency and increase security."

Gemalto's Sealys eDriver License solution is compliant with ISO 24727 standard and the Smartcard Framework and Smartcard License Interoperability Protocol (SLIP), which is the standard referenced to by the drivers license project.
