Further Order For LaserCard Supporting Italian ID Card Program

LaserCard : 07 January, 2011  (Application Story)
Italyís Citizen ID Card program will be supplied with ID cards from LaserCard with high security features in new order from the Italian government
LaserCard has received an order to supply additional credentials for Italy’s Citizen ID Card program, known as the Carta d'Identità Elettronica or CIE. The highly secure, multi-technology ID cards, based on LaserCard’s optical security media platform, are used by citizens for identification and travel. The order is valued at approximately $540,000 and is expected to be delivered by March 31, 2011.



Italy’s Citizen ID Card is a key mechanism for security and law enforcement authorities to verify the identity of citizens while preventing the counterfeiting and fraudulent use of vital documents. The program includes special-language ID cards that are issued to citizens living in border regions where languages other than Italian are predominant. A small proportion of the cards from this order will be printed in Slovenian.



LaserCard’s multi-technology ID cards are also used by two Italian government agencies – the Ministry of Justice and the National Police (the Carabinieri) – to help protect employees and provide secure access to government services.



“Italy’s continuing investment in secure, multi-technology ID credentials highlights the country’s commitment to protecting its internal security and the security of its borders through the valid identification of citizens and government employees,” said Robert DeVincenzi, president and CEO of LaserCard.



LaserCard’s advanced ID credentials are trusted by governments worldwide to protect the personal identification of their citizens, foreign residents and government employees, and to provide official documentation such as driver licenses and vehicle registration cards. LaserCard supplies ID credentials for government ID programs worldwide, including the US Green Card, multiple programs in Italy, the Saudi Arabia and Angola National ID Cards, the Costa Rica Foreign Resident Card, the Hungarian Professional Driving Licence and vehicle registration programs for three state authorities in India.



The purchase order was received from LaserCard’s Rome-based Authorized Value Added Reseller.
