"STORK - present and future in cross-border services and user authentication - legal issues" will be presented by Frank Leyman, Fedict, on Monday 24th October 2011 during the third edition of the National eID & ePassport Conference.

The 3rd edition of the Conference will be hosted this year in Istanbul, Turkey on the 24th-25th of October 2011 with the support of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and under the patronage of Mrs Neelie KROES, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda.

The follow-up to very successful previous conference editions in Lisbon 2009 and Athens 2010, will continue to focus on recent developments in different countries across the Globe and new major political initiatives both nationally and from the European Commission.

The World is witnessing the foundation of a global eID infrastructure, based on the digitalization of citizen ID documents. Over 80% of the European Union Member States and ICAO Countries have introduced or are in the process of introducing biometric-based ID documents or are at least considering doing so. The trend towards this form of technology is becoming ever more apparent and numerous countries in all the World continents are taking clear steps in this direction. Such a revolution (based on PKI, digital identity and biometrics) paves the way to a broader (and more secure) usage of these documents far beyond its initial purposes. In the Internet as in the physical world - the trend is a move towards nationally issued ID documents that can be used in an international application context (the use of PKI and biometrics is expected to enhance security by making it easier to link the eDocument with the rightful owner). With this in mind, MULTICERT, PrimeKey Solutions, Nerd and Proline, under the wings of the Turkish Foreign Ministry, proceed to organize the 3rd edition of National eID & ePassport Conference.

The National eID & ePassport Conference takes place in luxury Conrad Istanbul Hotel, in the heart of Istanbul, the main city of Turkey.
