The national population registry and identity management in Norway

Norway is currently working on modernizing the Norwegian National Population Registry. The Registry issue identity number to both residents and people with a temporary connection to Norway. The ID-number issued is used as an identifier, when the rights and duties the person have in Norway is under consideration. It is also the base of the Tax census, electoral roll and welfare benefits. In a digital society both the number itself and the personal information connected to the number, has become of great value to the society. The national ID-number is the core for digital identities, ID-documents and it is used by both public authorities and the private sector. To secure privacy for the person who has been issued an ID-number and to fight ID-related crime, they plan to "lock" one person to one identity in Norway by using biometrics. They are working on ID-Management from a holistic view accross different authorites, and have suggested a common vision for a holistic national ID-management.
