Biometrics for Civil ID - Workshop and Conference

Date: 2016-06-15 (09:00-17:00) Location: Hotel Postillion Bunnik, Kosterijland 8 3981 AJ Bunnik, The Netherlands

Organizer: Platform Identity Management Netherlands in cooperation with the European Association for Biometrics
Speakers: Jasper Mutsaers, Victoria Saue, Max Snijder, Reinier van der Drift and others

Biometrics for Civil ID is a workshop and conference about the use of biometrics for national identity systems and electronic services. The paper ‘Identity Management in 2030’ by the Dutch National Office for Identity Data provides us with a vision where conclusive proof of identity is evolving into a situation of achieving evidence of identity, subjected to scenarios, availability of information and prior knowledge about a person.

The first Apple smart phones with inbuilt fingerprint authentication functionality has brought biometric authentication into the domain of mass markets. At the same time, governments understand that identity management is crucial to their operations and that a reliable identity infrastructure is a precondition for a successful implementation of identity management. Both in the electronic services domain as well as in national identity management, biometrics seem increasingly to take a pivotal role in facilitating convenient electronic consumer services, while providing an important addition to the establishment of a credible identity. This includes the power of biometrics to de-duplicate ID databases and to prevent identity fraud with tokens such as passports, national ID cards and smart phones.

The workshop and conference will look into future scenarios starting with the reality of today. Topics to be discussed are:

  1. Identity Management in 2030: the global approach on identity;
  2. Exchange of formal legal and functional credentials in European context;
  3. Civil-id in consumer markets;
  4. Biometrics & mobile authentication: new payment platforms leading the way in biometrics (Samsung Pay, Apple Pay etc.);
  5. Biometrics for Civil-ID international context (international speaker)

Entrance fees: normal: 375,- Euro / EAB members: 175,- Euro (also for PIMN and ECP members)
