Four year Mexican voter ID card contract.

Digimarc : 20 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Secure voter identification using photo ID cards from Digimarc will be issued throughout Mexico during the next four years.
Digimarc has been awarded a contract by the Instituto Federal Electoral (IFE) of Mexico to supply tens of millions of voter identification credentials over the next four years.

The contract extends Digimarc's service to the Mexican government, building upon the company's track record in supplying IFE's voter ID program for the past four years. Digimarc's solution for highly secure, centrally produced credentials delivered more than 38 million voter IDs under the original contract.

IFE issues photo ID cards to eligible voters for local and federal elections. The voter ID is the main form of identity for the majority of Mexico's citizens. It is used in banks (for example, when cashing a check) and for almost every official request where an ID is required.

Under the new contract, Digimarc will continue to supply all voter ID card materials and a number of new security features (including digital watermarking), operate central issue card manufacturing facilities, and provide overall service of the system to IFE.

"We are honoured by Mexico's continued trust in our industry-leading voter ID issuance solution," said Bob Eckel, president, ID Systems, Digimarc. "We look forward to enhancing the security of the Mexican voter ID in this new contract with innovations like Digimarc IDMarc digital watermarking while continuing to provide a highly secure, centrally issued credential that Mexican citizens can use to establish their identity for a variety of daily needs."

Digimarc secure identification solutions are used currently in a number of ID programs in Latin America, including Costa Rica and Honduras, as well as in Puerto Rico.
