TITLE OF PRESENTATION
The Big Payback: Alternative financing models for eID Projects
The financial costs of deploying an eID card project are quite significant; with the smallest projects often resulting in multi-millions in costs. In the traditional model, these costs are borne by the citizen who are charged a fee for the production of the document. However, several governments are taking different approaches which shift these costs to other service providers who benefit from use of the card, for example banks or mobile network operators who are legally obligated to “know your customer” to combat money laundering or terrorism. Another possibility is to charge per verification of the electronic signature function of these eID cards. This presentation will introduce the most important eID card refinancing models and cover the pros and cons of these approaches.
