• Topic: Breeder Documents – closing the gap in the identity management chain

Breeder documents like birth certificates are missing common rules and specifications and suffer from a lack of security features. Moreover they are purely “analogue” with no means of digital verification possibilities. Nevertheless, breeder documents e.g. birth certificates are used to issue genuine identity documents like e-passports. As a consequence breeder documents are counterfeited quite often today as forgers and criminals aim at the weakest link in the identity chain.
This presentation highlights the importance of the background system including digital tags for a secure validation of the integrity and authenticity of breeder documents for a reliable identity management.
