Implementation Solution

In this video, you will learn about the implementation solution used in case study 1.
So the implementation– we had different phases. We had the enrollment. The e-KTP used a smart card, so we had the chip encoding. We needed to make sure that the issuance process was secure, the actual delivery of the cards and the technology was managed so that people couldn’t issue fake cards. We needed appropriate encryption protections, RFID for contactless technologies. And also, behind all of this, is a database linking the information on the e-KTP to the government data sets. So we needed to look at reader technologies. Potentially the use of third party integration tools – can we use this for other purposes?
There were reports of damage to the smart card chip when these cards were, through their day-to-day use, when they were used through photocopiers and when the cards pass through electromagnetic fields. And at that point, we have issues around reissuing and re-enrollment. But this became a great new foundation identity, including for passports, for driving licences, for tax, and also for property ownership. So this is a very important document. This becomes the foundation identity for an entire country. So a successful project and one that benefits and creates so many more opportunities.
