Security Document World - Day 3: Security Documents: Today, Tomorrow and Beyond
"The Case for Physical and Digital in Tandem"
Ian will examine and compare the requirements and experience of identity protection in the world of physical cards and passports and the world of smartphones. Why does IATA embrace the concept of "OneID" – everything a traveller needs stored on or accessible from their smartphone – while ICAO and its members remain wedded to the examination of physical documents? What are the strengths and weaknesses, the conveniences and threats, of the two approaches and can the digital and physical be work together to give the best of both worlds? Can the digital sector draw on the 1000 years of experience in combating counterfeits on paper?
