Officer ID card
Building on its experience, the Imprimerie Nationale develops a wide range of agent and professional cards with identification and authentication systems tailored to the clients’ needs.
Our solutions range from identification cards to authentication cards with a contact-based interface and authentication cards fitted with a second non contact-based chip enabling access control management.
The Imprimerie Nationale relies on its integrated systems to offer infrastructure consisting of secure visual design, data provision and personalization, management of the card’s life cycle (including tracking), and secure infrastructure, including PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) and cryptographic systems, certificate publications and rescissions, PIN number management and editing, dispatching and potential returns management.
Security technologies incorporated in these cards not only provide identification of the cardholder but also identification of his/her job and/or mission. The Imprimerie Nationale produces professional cards such as Taxi Cards, Police Cards and Customs Cards.
Focus on Customs Agent Cards
There are 18 000 new secure Customs Agent Cards in France. Micro-letters, invisible ink and watermarks are used to ensure document fraud protection. This securitization system makes it impossible to modify the card and guarantees the presence of a sworn civil servant.
Focus on Taxi Cards
The new Taxi Card has been specifically designed for France’s 52 000 taxi drivers. It is counterfeit-proof and resistant to UV radiation, thus guaranteeing its durability. This compulsory card will be placed on the taxi’s windshield hence proving the driver’s legal ability to practice his profession.
