IRIS Goes Beyond Identity at ID4Africa

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa. June 17, 2019 – Fresh from unveiling a new logo in conjunction with its 25th anniversary, IRIS Corporation Berhad (IRIS), inventor of the World’s 1st multi-application eID and ePassport, is making its presence known in Africa with new innovations for digitising citizen identification.

Showing at ID4Africa is IRIS’ new Digital ID platform to complement physical eID cards and add convenience in an increasingly digitalised world. National eID card holders will be able to use eID credentials as trusted, authenticated and verified identification to interact and transact online.

IRIS offers Digital ID through a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) platform which attaches identities to digital certificates for assured, verifiable and secure digital communications. This secure platform enables trusted electronic identities for people and services, allowing the implementation of strong authentication, data encryption and digital signatures. Digital ID will enable governments to accelerate their digitalization strategies and make the leap into a digital future.

In addition to Digital ID, IRIS will also be showcasing its multi-application eID solution and high quality ICAO compliant ePassports. As a certified security printer by INTERGRAF, IRIS has proven expertise in the development of secure and customized eIDs and ePassports.

IRIS has extensive experience and expertise in deploying Trusted ID solutions to 34 different countries to date including Nigeria, Senegal, Guinea and Tanzania, collaborating with governments in moving forward with robust citizen identification schemes that integrate security features with the latest security technologies and software.

“IRIS have had the opportunity to provide our Trusted ID solutions to 34 different clients with different needs and operating in different environments. We don’t see ourselves as just vendors, we are partners of growth for our clients from all across the globe” said Shaiful Subhan, Group CEO of IRIS.

At IRIS, we support governments around the world by providing the right secure solutions to this challenge; leading technology paired with competent and responsible consultation tailored to the specific national and international requirements aimed at protecting the identity of citizens.
