National ID Card, ePassport, Driver's License & Resident Permit
The Montenegrin identity project, awarded by the Ministry of Interior in 2019, is a best-practice example for a comprehensive document solution. It encompasses the delivery of a high-tech system for the production and personalization of the next generation of Montenegro ePassports and ID1-format ID cards, driver’s licenses and resident permits.
In addition to the development of individual security design concepts for all the ID documents provided, Mühlbauer ensured the seamless supply of blank documents. The project’s scope also included the delivery of a countrywide network of 21 high-tech biometric enrollment stations and document issuing sites, as well as systems for data management and state-of-the art document personalization by means of MB ALFRESCO® Picture. The project further comprises a central system for the issuance of all documents and the set-up of software components, e.g. the enrollment and issuing software MB getID, the personalization platformMB INCAPE and a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). All software components are centralized in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica.
As main solution partner to the government of Montenegro, Mühlbauer provided all necessary support to ensure a seamless implementation of the project. The system went live in December 2019 and ever since then the authorities of Montenegro can resort to a cutting-edge system for the personalization and issuance of high-secure ID documents.
