Tamper proof driving licenses for Michigan

L-1 Identity Solutions : 01 May, 2009  (Application Story)
Digital driving license and ID cards to be used in Michigan utilising secure credentialing systems from L-1 Identity Solutions
L-1 Identity Solutions has been awarded a competitive contract by the Michigan Department of State to centrally produce secure digital driver's licenses and ID cards. All cards manufactured by the L-1 system will meet federal credentialing security standards. Enhanced Driver's Licenses (EDLs) issued under the new contract will satisfy federal border crossing requirements under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). The contract will run for seven years, with an additional two-year extension possible at the option of the State. The award was made to the Secure Credentialing Division of L-1.

"We will be pleased to offer Michigan residents new licenses and IDs that further protect the identity of Michigan citizens," said Terri Lynn Land, Michigan Secretary of State. "Our new standard and enhanced driver's licenses and ID cards will be extremely secure, utilizing several state-of-the art features to protect against fraud. The partnership with L-1 will produce positive results as their card production and delivery system has aligned well with our anti-identity theft initiatives."

L-1's highly-secure central production facilities manufacture the most advanced credentials available. While maintaining the benefits of high quality coluor photo imagery, the multi-mode personalization processes developed for the card include next generation technology for ultraviolet inks, banknote printing, and personalized laser-based elements for a superior set of linked and layered security features.

"Decades of experience in secure credentialing coupled with ongoing innovations from L-1 ensure that our customers have the most efficient and secure credentialing processes, secure production facilities and tamper-proof cards possible," said Robert LaPenta, Chairman, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions. "We also provide added value by helping States like Michigan meet future federal security requirements for a range of card types."

The Secure Credentialing Division of L-1 Identity Solutions offers complete systems integration and solutions for the entire secure credential lifecycle, from testing through issuance and inspection. More than 100 million secure credentials are produced annually using L-1 solutions. This includes secure driver's licenses produced in the majority of U.S. states and worldwide. Dozens of countries also rely on L-1 solutions as part of citizen credentialing programs including voter registration, passports, National ID and others. In fact, L-1 is the sole source provider of US passport production capabilities and produces the U.S. Passport Card and Border Crossing Card.
