Gemalto will also implement an advanced enrollment system including photo and signature capture as well as new payment terminals. For the credential itself, the State of Georgia selected Gemalto’s premium polycarbonate licenses to reduce document forgery and protect against identity fraud. Polycarbonate’s durability increases the longevity of the driver’s license and enables the high-security engraving of a black-and-white photo.
Georgia has also chosen to add Multiple Laser Images (MLIs), a level one security feature (visible to the naked eye) where different images such as a portrait, logo, symbol or numbers can be seen depending on the viewing angle, making the license extremely difficult to replicate. The symbolic Georgia peach will also be integrated into the design of the card.
“The State of Georgia is committed to upholding the best customer service experience possible while also protecting our citizens’ identities, and Gemalto’s innovative products and services are the best options to help us reach that goal, said Spencer R. Moore, commissioner of Georgia DDS.
