ID Cards from Gemalto provide security to Queensland Police

Gemalto : 20 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Police in Australia are using the Protiva cards from Gemalto for fulfilling combined identification and access control functions
Gemalto has been selected to provide new electronic ID Cards with Australia's Queensland Police Service. The deployment benefits from the use of Gemalto's Protiva family of solutions to provide, in concert with other software products, a complete end-to-end digital security solution. This marks a significant development in the digital security space in Australia, as the Queensland Police Service will be the first police force to internally adopt an innovative solution that strengthens access security and enhances operation management.

Currently, officers at the State agency carry separate photo identification cards and building access cards, and use passcodes to gain entry onto network systems. These will be replaced by a new police ID solution featuring dual interface microprocessor cards, PC Twin smartcard readers and the Classic Client software. Gemalto is providing elements of the solution through a system integrator to dramatically raise the level of protection against possible external threats such as hacking.

Tan Teck Lee, President, Gemalto Asia remarked, "Queensland police is at the forefront of law enforcement to protect life and property, and it is pertinent that their internal systems are also highly safeguarded from threats that could compromise their duty to the public. Gemalto is proud to be working with the Queensland Police Service to provide the agency with our digital security solution, which will not only heighten security but also optimize identity management processes within the Service."
