HID’s Comprehensive Smart Card Solution to Secure Access to Device Data for Drivers, Law Enforcement and More

 HID has been awarded a contract to provide Finland with a new high-security, driver’s license cards and personalization services solution, incorporating the European second-generation smart Tachograph solution. 

This collaboration reflects HID’s commitment to enhancing security and efficiency in Finland’s transportation systems.

Finland will benefit from a comprehensive, tailor-made, and configurable solution that integrates software, hardware, and equipment to align with the Traffic Authority’s vision of a streamlined and efficient digital document issuance system.

For the project, HID has joined forces with CardPlus Systems, a trusted partner that provides secure ID documents, services, and systems, to ensure an exceptional driver’s license solution with industry-leading features.

“The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, Traficom, is pleased to enter into a partnership with HID. We are convinced that with HID’s broad experience in the field of trusted identity solutions, we will be able to ensure that our card services continue to meet the highest level of security, efficiency, and compliance with the European Union’s safety regulations.”
