Good ideas overcome frontiers. Innovation made in Germany.

The new German ID card is part of a highly complex, secure ID system that was born from the efforts of many different stakeholders. This innovation was made possible bei Bundesdruckerei’s co-operation with its strong partners.

We would especially like to thank those companies who, as close development partners, helped to successfully establish one of the world’s most modern secure ID production facilities.

Whether travelling offline or surfing online, crossing borders between the real and the digital world, signing a contract in a store or furnishing ID on the internet – the holder of the new ID card can rest assured that his identity is secure.

This handy smart card from Berlin is one of the most secure documents worldwide and forms part of a complex ID system that allows the first-ever standardized, online proof of identity.
