Gemalto: Colorado partners with MIDS, a Gemalto company, to provide a complete solution for secure polycarbonate identity credentials

AMSTERDAM, May 16, 2016
- Marquis ID Systems (MIDS), a Gemalto Company, was awarded a six year
contract by the Colorado Department of Revenue's Division of Motor Vehicles
(DMV) to provide a turnkey driver license and identification (DL/ID) card
production system.

Today, Colorado is leveraging MIDS' comprehensive issuance solution that
includes document scanning and authentication plus photo, signature, as well
as fingerprint capture and verification. MIDS is also providing Colorado with
its robust central issuance and personalization solution of highly
securepolycarbonate driver licenses, instruction permits, and identification
cards.

MIDS experts worked with the State of Colorado and its nearly 60 state and
county offices to facilitate the transition with operational and educational
trainings for DMV operators and local law enforcement.

For Colorado, it was important to design thisnew credential with security
featuresthat are easy to authenticate without the need for special equipment.
Colorado decided to transition to a polycarbonate based credential for its
advanced security features.

As driver license identity fraud is a continuing concern, Colorado is bringing
its citizens one of the industry's most secure credentials: polycarbonate
technology allows the images and the text to be laser engraved into the card
body. With Sealys Window Lock, the card also contains a secondary card holder
portrait in a see-through window, making it virtually impossible to
counterfeit or compromise.

"MIDS' technology helped improve our systematic procedures making the workflow
process easier for our operators
," said David Lindsay, Driver's License Operations Director at the Colorado
DMV. "The protection of our citizens' identities is our utmost concern and
with MIDS
we have taken great strides in improving the security of the credentials we
issue."

"Working with Colorado DMV, we held a Collaborative Design Forum to recreate
the famous Rocky Mountains picture card background using the most
sophisticated document security features for their new polycarbonate
credential
," said Steve Steigmeyer, Vice-President of MIDS. "We believe that the benefit
in using polycarbonate for Colorado's credentials
is twofold: a more secure form of identity in addition to an extended
duration of the credential."
