CARTES & IDentification 2009 is turning the spotlight on strong authentication. Exhibitors will present solutions for meeting today’s security needs in the field of the Trusted Internet. The theme of the fight against cybercrime will also be addressed.
The IDentification trade show will be held alongside CARTES and will bring together players offering solutions and technologies related to biometrics, securing of documents and transactions, authentication, physical and logical access control, cryptography, RFID, as well as electroni government procedures.
Following on from the United States, Russia is the focus of CARTES & IDentification in 2009. Use of cards has become more widespread over recent years and deployment of equipment at point of sale is accelerating. The Russian exhibitors present will demonstrate the sector’s dynamism.
The conference will also look at contactless payments becoming a reality in France. The interest and enthusiasm generated by NFC over recent years has concentrated on the possibility of transferring credit and debit cards to mobile phones to make contactless payments. However, the complexity of setting up standardized and secure NFC systems, as well as the need for the various players to agree on the service model, has delayed a wide-scale launch of contactless payment in France.
