French National Identity Card

PARIS, Dec. 20, 2021 — The new French electronic National Identity Card (eID) has been awarded the prestigious Best New National ID Card prize by Reconnaissance International at the HSP Awards EMEA (High-Security Printing for Europe - Africa - Middle East). A jury of independent international experts has recognized this personal identification document program’s outstanding achievement and technical sophistication. The French Ministry of the Interior, ANTS (Agence Nationale des Titres Sécurisés), and IN Groupe worked to design and produce the new French eID.

• An identity document at the cutting edge of technology

Under its Regulation, France has deployed a new identity card, more secure, convenient, and innovative. This card can be used to prove one’s identity and serves as a travel document in the European Union. As a result, France has issued more than 2 million new eID(s) since June 2021.

This next-generation polycarbonate card can meet French citizens’ everyday needs. It incorporates both tried and tested security features and innovations with security design validated by the Ministry of the Interior experts.

The card incorporates new security features, including the DOVID, a new-generation holographic device. The card’s secure background extends into the transparent border of the card. In addition, a Visible Digital Seal allows the card to be digitally signed and ensures the integrity and origin of the credentials. Further, it is impossible to access the data on a highly secured chip.

• IN Groupe at the service of the State

In the French National Identity Card program, IN Groupe acts as a solutions integrator, relying on the contribution of some twenty different companies. As a result, IN Groupe qualifies, tests, and selects the best technologies, components, and IT systems that the French government needs to build the most secure document according to the ANTS specifications and the expected security targets.

IN Groupe is a public limited company. It guarantees France the sovereignty to issue its legal identity documents. Further, it equips the French government with identity technology operations.

For IN Groupe, identity and its protection are at the heart of its raison d’être because it ensures States’ sovereignty and trusts with their citizens, especially since legal identity remains the reference identity among all others both in the physical and digital worlds.
