HID Global, the globally renowned company in trusted identity solutions, has announced that it has deployed the government of Libya’s first diplomatic and special ePassport program.

HID Integrale

HID Global provided Libya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) with HID Integrale, a secure end-to-end solution that expedites the application and issuance processes and manages the entire ePassport lifecycle.

For improved security, the redesigned and modernised booklets include a durable polycarbonate data page and are personalised using new laser engraving and chip encryption equipment. HID Global designed, engineered and delivered the identity solution to the Libyan government in four months, even amid travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Robust and complete ePassport system

We are pleased that our collaboration with HID Global has yielded a robust and complete ePassport system"

We are pleased that our collaboration with HID Global has yielded a robust and complete ePassport system that we have seamlessly integrated with our existing processes,” said Mohamed Elkoni with Libya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Mohamed Elkoni adds, “HID’s identity document expertise, the delivery of the solution in record time against the current restrictive backdrop, and ongoing technical support has greatly simplified the implementation of our new systems.” 

Public key infrastructure (PKI) service

To ensure compliance with ICAO standards, HID Integrale’s public key infrastructure (PKI) service creates and manages Libya’s Country Signing Certification Authority (CSCA) keys and certificates to sign personalised eDocuments and enable verification.

By implementing the PKI service, Libya can connect with the ICAO Public Key Directory, which enables the global use of their new ePassports and the potential for future security enhancements, such as biometrics. In addition, the solution’s web-based platform makes it possible for HID engineers to efficiently train the ministry’s staff as part of HID Integrale’s customer support package.

Issuing secure diplomatic and special ePassports

A successful migration to an ePassport system requires a solution that enhances each touchpoint of the user experience, from application to travel,” said Craig Sandness, Senior Vice President and Head of Secure Issuance and Citizen ID Solutions with HID Global.

Craig Sandness adds, “By opting for HID’s Integrale software suite, the Libyan government has created a solid and future-proof foundation to issue diplomatic and special ePassports.
