HID Global to display new innovations at ICAO conference

HID Global said it will showcase its new innovations at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Machine Readable Travel Documents (MRTD) Conference, taking place in Montreal between October 14 and 16.

At the event, HID Global will display its mobile ID experience on smartphones and share its latest innovations in thin secure polycarbonate e-passport datapages.

The company noted that HID Global’s highlight at the event would be a thin polycarbonate electronic e-passports datapage. The datapages are said to be the thinnest in the industry. It provides increased flexibility and offers possibilities to add more security features on both sides of the datapage to prevent duplication.

“We’re seeing a growing global demand for more advanced electronic ID credentials as governments look to improve the citizen experience while maintaining the highest levels of security through ICAO compliance,” said Joseph Pearson, vice president of Government ID Solutions Sales, North America with HID Global.

HID Global executives will also be featured speakers in two sessions at the ICAO Conference.

In September, HID Global and SureID announced a technology alliance. Under the deal, HID Global will combine its Seos credential technology with SureID’s assurance identity management programs.

With the alliance, the companies aim to provide organizations the ability to conduct identity screening, verification and credentialing for vendors, contractors and volunteers in order to increase safety and security.
