LaserCard To Supply Optical Security Cards For US Green Card Program

LaserCard : 03 March, 2011  (Application Story)
Optical media security to be a feature of the cards being supplied to the US Government by LaserCard for use on the Green Card program

LaserCard has announced receipt of an order for approximately $8.6 million for optical security media cards to be issued under the Department of Homeland Security’s US Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) program. Delivery is scheduled for completion in August, 2011.


“The US Green Card has set new standards in security and functionality for government programs worldwide,” said Robert DeVincenzi, president of LaserCard Corporation.  “It is the world’s first implementation of optical security media for visual and data security and an RFID tag for accelerated border crossing, and it incorporates a host of security innovations.”


The US Green Card has been recognized by U.S. forensic experts as “effectively putting mass counterfeiters out of business” and the new card was judged the world’s leading government ID card in terms of technology and user utility in a July, 2010 report by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan. Officials of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Green Card’s issuer, were recently honored by GSN Magazine for their leadership in building the U.S. Green Card into a highly effective border security program.


“The specification of LaserCard’s optical security media for this high profile and critical application is evidence of the company’s innovative technical leadership in the secure credential arena,” said Denis Hébert, president and CEO of HID Global which recently completed the acquisition of LaserCard. “It is a key component of the compelling advantages we will jointly offer as a single source of complete e-Identity solutions.”


LaserCard’s highly secure, 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 driving licences and vehicle registration cards.
