ITW highlights need for physical IDs in white paper


ITW Security Division has added its latest White Paper ‘The Physical ID Card is Dead – Long live the Physical ID!’ to its website for the personal ID and secure government documents market.

The new ITW Security White Paper looks at the growth in digital and mobile IDs and their role, alongside those of physical ID cards, in delivering secure governmental services and projects. Reviewing the drivers for growth and the challenges involved, the White Paper highlights some of the latest physical ID technologies and card structures available. It concludes that the opportunity exists for the two styles of ID to work in tandem, with the best of both formats enabling a secure and reliable ID project to be delivered.

“In order to enable access to a wide variety of both commercial and government services, we all have a need to prove our identity in our everyday lives. The growth in technology has meant that our smart phones are now often able to meet this need through the provision of mobile IDs, however, there are still a wide variety of situations where only a physical ID card will suffice,” comments Joanne Ogden, ITW Security Division’s Global Sales Manager.

“The two formats of ID should, therefore, be complimentary rather than being mutually exclusive. And having both a physical and mobile identity can help to deliver access to a complete variety of commercial and government services, improving mobility and establishing trust between members of the public and service providers.”

ITW Security Division offers a wealth of products and services to Governments and companies worldwide to enhance and protect their security documents and this latest White Paper is available online as part of a series designed to share knowledge with customers and visitors alike.
