Biometric Citizens Key Adopted in Valencia Region of Spain

WISeKey : 23 February, 2010  (Application Story)
Valencian Government drives to become the technological centre of the Mediterranean region and adopts WISeKey's biometric key with physical identification
Inspired by WISeKey, the Valencia Government has set the scene to transform the Region into the technological hub of Mediterranean. This to purpose of this «hub» is to promote the local development on economic, cultural, social and environmental levels to achieve an international status through the local know-how of the Technology Institutes. Supported financially by the key players in the Private Sector of Switzerland, Brazil, the United States and Spain, in cooperation with the Spanish Public Sector, this technological epicentre will not only accelerate the cycle-time to market of new ideas, but also the time to develop the innovative, security, finance, education and health values of this Region. The future hub will combine physical infrastructures - notably those of the port of Valencia that have already proven their worth in two America's Cups as well as in several Formula 1 competitions-, with those of a flexible working environment provided by high tech
resources.

Particularly aware this unique economic challenge for the Region, the Valencia authorities have already adopted the concept of a Citizen's Key as developed by WISeKey. This USB biometric Key with digital identification, made freely available to all Valencia's citizens, will allow access simply and totally securely to online services made available by regional partners such as: the Government, banks, unemployment office, citizen protection, social networks, cultural life, events, etc. Special services for particular sectors of the population (children, women, pensioners) are currently being studied.
