HID Global – Citizen Identity Solutions

HID Global – Citizen Identity Solutions


HID Global’s Citizen Identity Business is leading the way in ensuring that every citizen around the world has control of their own identity. By creating sustainable foundations for identity, we give citizens access to basic rights such as healthcare and education, while enabling them to become productive members of society–no matter where they live. With innovative and future-proof identity solutions we equip todays and future generations for any identity challenge.
At HID, we empower governments and local partners through the delivery of our trusted identity solutions. We support governments in the design and implementation of end-to-end software solutions — from enrolment to the creation and issuance of state-of-the-art identities. Our biometric identity portfolio enables customers from civil government, criminal justice and the military to precisely identify individuals and give them secure access to their premises. Our biometrics solutions also speed up border control processes for travellers at airports, ports and land borders. 

As mobile connectivity and digital services are rapidly evolving, HID Global is also shifting the identity paradigm with mobile and digital ID solutions that meet and exceed today’s citizens expectations for more convenient experiences. These new trusted identities on mobile devices support co-existence with our traditional identity documents, such as e-passports and ID cards that enable all citizens to transact, access and travel safely.
HID Global is involved in more than 60% of the world’s electronic document programs, in which we are already addressing the challenge of identity for many citizens.  Our continuous innovation and development will ensure that future generations will have far greater control of their social rights.
