Monaco has selected IN Groupe as the technological partner for the design and security of the country’s digital identity.
The Principality of Monaco said in a media statement that it is confident in the French group’s ability to combine high technological expertise and bespoke support to define and deploy a global and integrated identity system.
IN Groupe has been asked to create electronic ID cards, residence permits, and biometric passports for the country.
The digital IDs will start rolling out in 2021.
Monaco natives and residents who give their consent will have a digital identity linked to their physical ID document, which will allow cardholders access to state services without needing to show any additional paperwork.
The digital IDs are designed to be interoperable with other European identity schemes, and are compliant with the latest eIDAS, OSIA, and Open ID Connect standards.
