Chile’s Civil Registry and Identification Service went live with its new national ID and passport infrastructure in September 2013, following a massive modernization program.
Safran is in charge of the deployment, providing end-to-end secure ID management and document production.
One of the most advanced in the world, the Chilean eID card is based on a multi-biometric systemcomprised of an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) and a Facial Recognition System, which uses state-of-the-art biometric technologies.
In addition, the document validation process uses two-factor biometric authentication (fingerprints and face recognition). This adds greater accuracy and security, and avoids duplication of person’s identity in the database.
“We have reached a symbolic milestone together with the Government of Chile, a flagship customer for Safran and pioneer in developing strong digital identities for its citizens,” said Jessica Westerouen van Meeteren, EVP of Safran Identity & Security’s Government Identity Solutions division.
“Chile has raised the bar in terms of identity protection in Latin America and has laid a solid foundation to develop e-services which will benefit all Chileans.”
“We are proud to be a part of this digital transformation in managing civil identities.”
