Document production and personalization
Document systems faced new challenges in the twenty-first century. The increasing mobility requires the development of personal identification technology. Therefore, – besides the protection of basic documents and the personalization – application of the innovative security technologies has become and will become necessary. In addition to the production of documents and security forms, State Printing House Plc. is able to develop complex protection concepts as well. Moreover, the Corporation is ready to install decentralized document personalization systems from delivery of the necessary, in-house developed security inks and nano-inks as well as the equipment required for document verification, to delivery of the IT solutions. These systems are suitable for the secure production of driving licenses, entrepreneurs’ licenses, residentcardss and registration certificate in office environments.
Due to its experience in the field of security forms over the past 150 years, State Printing House Plc. Undertook an active role in the successful document reform after the regime change in Hungary. But the technologies and international requirements anticipate the necessity of alteration of the security concepts. Focusing on the social requirements and cooperation between states, the Corporation has document solutions which meet the valid standards and are capable of the interoperable operation. Based on international standards, the so-called E-ID cards developed by State Printing House Plc. allow electronic identification, verification and signature, while these documents can perfectly conform to the individual public administration and data protection systems of the given state.
The chip technology used in national passports and other fields opens up the possibility building state-of-the-art biometric identifiers into the identification system. According to this, documents are developing mainly and perceptibly in the direction of e-documents. Similarly to its leading role played in the field of card-based documents and laser engraving technology after the change in regime, State Printing House Plc. is the leader in the field of e-documents in the 3rd millennium as well. Due to the developments proceeding in its Document Security Laboratory, the Corporation offers state-of-the-art solutions regarding both the electronic personal identification and the biometry-based technology.
The Corporation’s capabilities in the field of security technology and plastic card technology are demonstrated by references such as the personal ID card, driving license, vehicle registration card, student card issued in frame of the Hungarian document reform and manufactured in consortium, the Albanian driving license, as well as the production and IT preparation of several transport cards, and last but not least, the Hungarian biometric passport meeting the EU requirements.
