IDEMIA has signed a strategic contract with Morocco’s Direction
Générale de la Sûreté Nationale (National Security Government
Department – DGSN) to supply the country’s latest national electronic
ID cards and introduce a secured digital identity online services platform.

Backed by DGSN’s new digital identity national system, Moroccans will
be able to access online services in a secured environment. IDEMIA will
provide DGSN its digital authentication platform with a view to facilitating
online correspondence between Moroccans and government agencies
or private service providers, who seek to benefit from the new
national ID card’s digital features.

The new biometric ID card will accelerate rollout of Morocco’s online
services and will ramp up development of the digital economy. The card
will deliver rock-solid online authentication and transaction security for all
Moroccans. As a result, all online services will be able to tap into DGSN’s
new digital identity national system while providing citizens user-friendly,
fast and secure access that safeguards the privacy of their personal data
on their electronic ID cards.

IDEMIA currently produces highly secure identity documents, including
national ID cards, passports, vehicle registration documents, driving
licences and healthcare cards, in countries around the world apart from
Morocco, such as the US, Estonia and the Netherlands. It also supplies
digital identity management systems to governments and public and
private sector organisations.
