MONACO, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --


As the cornerstone of its digital ecosystem and the Extended Monaco program,

Monaco's digital identity scheme is sure to enjoy optimum security levels

thanks to IN Groupe technologies.


The Principality of Monaco announced that it has selected IN GROUPE as the

technological partner for the design and security of its digital identity.

Confident in the French Group's ability to combine high technological expertise

and bespoke support, the Principality of Monaco has chosen IN Groupe to define

and deploy a global and integrated identity system.


By creating Monaco's new identity documents (electronic ID cards, residence

permits, biometric passports), IN Groupe provides a high-performance and

personalised solution in line with government's expectations.


An ambitious program focused on the security of the population's data and

digital habits


Each Monaco native and resident will be able to have a digital identity

associated with their new identity document according to a provisional

deployment schedule starting in the first half of 2021. It will offer highly

secure yet simple authentication without the need for additional supporting

documents, giving fluid access to the State's services.


In accordance with general security standards of the Principality of Monaco and

with European regulations (eIDAS - electronic identification and trust

service), Monaco's digital identity scheme anticipates digital interoperability

with the various European electronic identification services. A person's

sovereign identity can only incorporate their digital identity with the

explicit consent of the person concerned.


By using standard protocols (OSIA and OIDC - open ID connect), the government

intends to simplify the deployment and use of digital identity within its



Stronger relationship between the Government and citizens

- E-services integrating the use of the digital identity:

Extended Monaco's mission is to make digital technology the basis of all public

policies to permeate long-term all aspects of society, whether for health,

education, or the public services.

electronics and biometrics, from components to services. IN Groupe operates

three affiliated brands: SPS for electronic components, Surys for optical and
