2nd edition of the National eID & ePassport Conference

Έναρξη 00:00 - Λήξη 00:00

This year we will meet in Athens, Greece on the 21-22nd of October 2010.

In this much awaited follow-up to last year’s conference in Lisbon 2009, we continue to focus on recent developments in different countries and new major political initiatives both nationally and from the European Commission.

The World is witnessing the foundation of a global eID infrastructure, based on the digitalization of citizen ID documents. Over 80% of the European Union Member States and USA have introduced, while other ICAO Countries are in the process of introducing biometric-based ID documents or are at least considering doing so. The trend towards this form of technology is becoming ever more apparent and numerous countries in all the World continents are taking clear steps in this direction. Such a revolution (based on PKI, digital identity and biometrics) paves the way to a broader (and more secure) usage of these documents far beyond its initial purposes, in the Internet as in the physical world - the trend is a move towards nationally issued ID documents that can be used in an international application context (the use of PKI and biometrics is expected to enhance security by making it easier to link the eDocument with the rightful owner).

With this in mind, MULTICERT, PrimeKey Solutions and INCM joined forces to organize the first National eID & ePassport Conference, Lisbon 2009. This year, PrimeKey, Multicert and Byte Computer will organize the second edition of the National eID & ePassport Conference in Athens 21-22 October 2010 and will also add a requested new theme with focus on Mobile (wireless) PKI.
