Gemalto to supply Sealys MultiApp ID to Mongolia
The Mongolian Ministry of Justice and Home Affairs has selected Gemalto Sealys secure multi-service smart ID cards for their national identity program. This new eID program will secure Mongolian citizens’ identities as well as pave the way for new eGovernment services. Gemalto worked with Bodi International, the program prime contractor and a leading IT company in Mongolia, on this project. Mongolia has approximately three million inhabitants and all citizens above 18 years old are to carry eID cards as their national ID document.
Gemalto’s Sealys MultiApp ID, the size of a credit card, is fitted with a microprocessor and the Gemalto software that securely manages the citizen’s personal data, including the holder’s digital photograph and fingerprints, while respecting the holder’s privacy. The Mongolia national eID card also features Gemalto’s latest innovation in secure printing: the Sealys Clear Window, a transparent section created in the pure polycarbonate card body structure for enhanced protection against forgery.
This new reference strengthens Gemalto’s position in the national eID card market, following previous achievements in Bahrain, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, Lithuania, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
